Matlab Code – Change color of data points for each subject/group

This came about because I wanted to make a bar graph from a data set. In these data, each of my seven subjects contributed multiple data points. I wanted each bar that corresponded to a subject to be a unique color. I couldn’t find it anywhere online so here is a routine to accomplish it with either subjects as a cell array or numerical array. Note: You must have Matlab 2018a or greater. Otherwise you will get a CData error.
