How do I convert numbers of the form "12,109,987" stored in strings

조회 수: 1(최근 30일)
I need to work on numbers of the form "12,109,987" which are stored in strings so taht I can perform mathematical operations on it.
If I use str2num("12,109,987", it just gives three different numbers present on either side of commas [12 109 987] as output and it is difficult to work with them.
Thanks in advance.

you can use str2double function instead of str2num
str2double performs something similar to below operation if in case you need to implement yourself for different cases in future.
Refer this documentation for more info : str2double function
where s is your string.
[~,len] = size(s)
p = ""
for i = 1:len
if s(i)~= ','
p = p + s(i);
p = str2num(p); % p contains number from string as per your requirement
