finding parent words using strfind

1 ビュー (過去 30 日間)
As in normal case, i will have this huge cell array of words,
wordbank={'back'; 'beast';''fairytale';'aerial';'whale';'astronomy'.......}
I asked the user for a string of letters that might compare with what I have in the wordbank, so I tried to use strfind.
say,
wchoice=input('please enter a valid parent word','s')
then from here I tried to compare which word have similarities from the input with the list of words in wordbank.
so I used strfind(wordbank,wchoice)
which later will give me the cell with indices where the words are similar instead of just displaying what the word is.
I was hoping that something like this can appear if
wchoice='al'
I typed strfind(wordbank,wchoice)
ans=
'whale'
'fairytale'
Could you help me with this?Thank you.
