Convert an integer to a string

We have function in octave to convert an integer or an array of integer to a string or a character array. This function is ‘int2str()’.



>> s = int2str([1,2,3;4,5,6])

=> s = 1 2 3

4 5 6

>> whos s

=> gives the output as below

attr name = s, size = 2x7, bytes = 14 and class = char

This function is not very flexible. For better control over the results, use sprintf().
