Intersection of two vector of string/char type

1 view (last 30 days)
Hi.What is an analogue function for "intersect" when the vectors have string entries? For example A(1)='EDP PL',A(2)='VOD LN'. B(1)='VOD LN',B(2)='BNPP FP'.
If I have tow numerical vectors v1 and v2 I can find the intersection and the positions by simply [ig,ind1,ind2]=intersect(v1,v2).
How do I deal with this kind of situation ?

[a,b,c]=intersect('EDP PL','VOD LN');%works just fine

Your syntax is a bit confusing. Did you mean to use single quotes, or did you mean to use a string data type instead?
