I have a cell array of symbols: sym = {'A','B','C'}. I have a function that takes in a symbol (say 'A') and produces a certain result. Right now I am manually feeding in the symbol nmaes to the function. Is there a way to loop through the items of the sym cell array and programatically feed in the symbol names to the function? Thanks

Yes, look up eval() and evalin() functions in the help files. These functions accept strings as inputs and evaluate them as though they were entered on the command line. You may also consider using function handles in the cell array instead of strings if you are changing the function regularly.
