I have a string that I would like to print using fprintf, but I want to embed a newline character in the string as part of the argument. Here is the output to the below code:
mystring =
"This is my string.\nIt is too long so I use newline\ncharacters to print on the next line."
This is my string.\nIt is too long so I use newline\ncharacters to print on the next line.
mystring = "This is my string.\nIt is too long so I use newline\ncharacters to print on the next line.";
fprintf('%s',mystring);

mystring = "This is my string.\nIt is too long so I use newline\ncharacters to print on the next line.";
fprintf(mystring);
This is my string. It is too long so I use newline characters to print on the next line.
Or:
mystring = "This is my string.\nIt is too long so I use newline\ncharacters to print on the next line.";
str = sprintf(mystring);
fprintf('%s', str)
This is my string. It is too long so I use newline characters to print on the next line.
