How to make a simple plot (loading many files)?

Asked by Saturn's Ring on 30 Nov 2012

I have a series of data files (*.dat). They each contain two columns of data (magnitude and time). I need to load in all of these files into Matlab, then plot magnitude vs time for all of these files, in one single plot. I'm not good with loop functions that's why I need some help. Thank you.

for k=1:numel(name)
v=dlmread(name{k});
plot(v(:,1),v(:,2))
