Hello I have a hex cell array and I indexed them.
For example I have 'A7' and when I use hex2dec, it gives me nonsense result which is -7.7452e-121. how can I get exact result? I mean I want to see that hex A7 = decimal 167.
Thank you.

hex2dec('A7') % what you should have used
ans = 167
hex2num('A7') % what you actually used
ans = -7.7452e-121
The unfortunately named NUM2HEX and HEX2NUM convert to/from the IEEE 754 floating point hexadecimal representation, they are completely unsuitable for your task. Just for interest, the complete hexadecimal is:
num2hex(hex2num('A7'))
ans = 'a700000000000000'
Apparently someone thought that it would be a good idea to pad its input with trailing zeros. Ugh.

hex2num inteprete 'A7' as IEEE double number (64bit) with mantissa and exponents. So padding 0's before 'A7'. The string is in a different order (from last byte to first byte) so it looks like (actually not) padding 0's after 'A7'.

x ={'3A', 'F1', 'CF', '4C'}
x = 1×4 cell array
{'3A'} {'F1'} {'CF'} {'4C'}
y = cellfun(@hex2dec, x)
y = 1×4
