Subject: saving strings in a for loop
I'm working on a problem in which I have written a script to extract the first letter of each word in a sentence. These collected letters form a new word. I have ten sentences (and therefore ten words that I need to save to make a new sentence). I put a for loop around the extraction script, but I can't figure out how to save the word decoded from each sentence. my variable 'word' is simply overwritten every time I go through the loop.
%a-j are the individual sentences
% What I've done is write the sentences, and concatenate them into a matrix. I look for spaces in each row (sentence) and concatenate the first letter and every letter following a space to form 'word.'
I want to save each word in an array and print it out so it reads like a sentence.
word = [x(1), x(s+1)]
