Dear all

I have

A={

` [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] [0] ' b1' ' b1' ' b1' ' b1' ' b1' 'b1' ' b1'[0][0][0]'b1' ' b1'}`

I have this cell vector. This vector has a characteristic. Immediately after the first zeros the letter 'b1' begins. So I would like to count the zeros before the first 'b1' that starts to appear in this vector. In this case I have 39 zeros. Is it possible to calculate this number using a Matlab code?

thanks
