I have a cell array of VariableNames that Matlab created when reading a csv file. I want to change them to my own choice of names however, the order of the names is not guaranteed.
iddata = readtable('data.csv');
var_names = iddata.Properties.VariableNames;
names_to_replace = {'TonnageDeBSA', 'D__bitD___eauAuBSA', ...
'PressionPalierSAG', 'PuissanceSAG'};
replacements = {'TonnageBSA', 'DebitEauBSA', ...
'PressionPalierSAG', 'PuissanceSAG'};
replace_map = containers.Map(names_to_replace, replacements);
Obviously I could use a for loop:
new_var_names = {};
for i=1:numel(var_names)
new_var_names(i) = {replace_map(var_names{i})};
end
But I am hoping there is an easier way.
Does MATLAB have anything like a list comprehension in Python?
new_var_names = {replace_map[name] for name in var_names}
Even better if there is a way to handle failed matches:
new_var_names = {replace_map[name] for name in var_names if name in replace_map}

You might want to try out arrayfun, which can help you in applying a function to each element of array.
Otherwise, you can also do the above mentioned operation traditionally using for loop.

Most likely, yes. Had the texts been stored in string arrays then arrayfun had done the job.

With string and arrayfun on R2018b
%%
names_to_replace = ["TonnageDeBSA", "D__bitD___eauAuBSA", ...
"PressionPalierSAG", "PuissanceSAG"];
replacements = ["TonnageBSA", "DebitEauBSA", ...
"PressionPalierSAG", "PuissanceSAG"];
replace_map = containers.Map( names_to_replace, replacements );
%%
var_names = names_to_replace( randi([1,4],1,8) ); % test data
new_names = arrayfun( @(key) replace_map(key), var_names, "uni", false );
reshape( new_names, [],1 )
outputs
ans =
8×1 cell array
{'PuissanceSAG' }
{'DebitEauBSA' }
{'PressionPalierSAG'}
{'TonnageBSA' }
{'PuissanceSAG' }
{'DebitEauBSA' }
{'PressionPalierSAG'}
{'PressionPalierSAG'}

Surprise, I expected a string array as output. containers.Map (R2018b) doesn't seem to fully support strings.

Thanks, but the original source of the names is a cell array (from table.Properties.VariableNames) so I think cellfun is the best option as per my comment on the other answer.
