**What is MATLAB str2double?**

X = str2double( str ) converts the text in str to double precision values. str contains text that represents real or complex numeric values. str can be a character vector, a cell array of character vectors, or a string array. If str is a character vector or string scalar, then X is a numeric scalar.
