Hi all,
This is probably a silly question, but I was wondering if there was a way to increment over the alphabet similarily to how we increment a number. something similar to this:
count = 1;
while 1
count = count + 1
end
except instead of outputing a number that runs until your computer explodes, it does it for the alphabet. An output like this:
a, b, c, d, ... z
Is this possible? or is there some sort of ASCII incrementing I could do? It would make my program very pretty, and I like pretty programs.
Thanks in advance.

count = 'a';

count = char(count + 1)
end
