Running a code on multiple files in a folder and saving each output

Asked by Aravind
on 23 Nov 2012

I need help on a trivial issue. I am new to matlab and I just learnt the basics of matlab computing with which I have designed an algorithm for my purpose. Now, I need to run this code for many hundreds of files. There are many folders within which there are many files. Each folder has about 150 odd files. I need to run the same code on each of the 150 files and save the 150 output files in a new folder. So, if I give the path of the folder, the code should run my algorithm on each file in the folder and after running in a file, the output of the file should be stored as a new file in a new folder. If I have 1 folder with 100 input files, I should get an output of another folder with 100 output files. Help on this would be really appreciated.

Hi Titus

I have done that search. However, I am not able to find a satisfying answer. I tried sprintf but with vain. Can you give me link of an example?
