DSET2CELL

Convert dataset into cell array, one cell per feature

    C = DSET2CELL(A,N)
    C = A*DSET2CELL(N)

Input
 A Dataset with possibly categorical features
 N Desired features, default: all

Output
 C Cell array with one cell per feature. Categorical features are  decoded and stored as character arrays. If N is a scalar the cell  content of C is returned.

Description

This routine is an alternative for +A or DOUBLE(A), solving the problem  of categorical data. Categorical features stored in A by indices of lists  of category names in the feature domain field (SETFEATDOM) are decoded  and returned as strings in character arrays.

Missing data, coded as a NaN in a dataset are returned as an empty string  in case of a categorical feature.
