Example:
c1 = "The quick brown fox";
c2 = "jumped over the lazy dog";
c3 = c1 + newline + c2 % for example
c3 =
"The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog"
contains([c1;c2;c3],newline)
ans = 3×1 logical array
0 0 1
Check the doc page for newline to see if that's actually character you need to search for. Can also use contains() to search for more than one type of character if needed.
