Hi Hemke,
My solution uses PadRight to make all matrices have the same lengths,
and ArrayFlatten to combine all matrices in a single rectangular one.
Some example matrices:
m = {{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}};
n = {{7, 8, 9}, {1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}};
o = {{2, 4, 6}, {1, 3, 5}, {9, 7, 5}, {8, 6, 4}};
listA = {m, n, o};
The code:
mostRows = Max[Length /@ listA];
numColumns = Length[listA[[1, 1]]]; (*assumes, as given, that all
matrices have the same number of columns *)
newListA =
ArrayFlatten[{PadRight[#, {mostRows, numColumns}, Null] & /@
listA}];
Export["C:\\Documents and Settings\\Sjoerd\\Desktop\\New Text \
Document.tsv", newListA, "TSV"]
(The "TSV" part is superfluous if the filename already has this as
extension)
Cheers -- Sjoerd
