Sure...

Almost there...just have to use [] for the arrays inside the cell array
curlies...

>> A = {[1,2,2], [3,2,1], [5,3,4]}
A =
[1x3 double] [1x3 double] [1x3 double]

To address element contents, use them as well...

ans =
1

ans =
1 2 2
ans =
3 2 1
ans =
5 3 4

ans =
1 2 2

ans =
2

As a native structure, Fortran doesn't support cell arrays. You could
do something similar w/ user-defined types and allocatables but they
would look more like structures in Matlab than directly mimicking cell
arrays.
