Is matlab getting rid of the string variable?

2 views (last 30 days)
I tried to run a program that I made in matlab to write some G code and I got an error saying that the variable type sting will no longer be supported. Is that really happening?

Well, I opened up matlab again and ran the same code and it worked just fine. The might have been a weird update or something, but the error is gone.

Yes. In fairly old versions of MATLAB around R12 there was a datatype named string that was removed from MATLAB. I no longer recall what it used to do.
