Matlab can not split the txt file.

Hello

I have a text file which matlab can not split to different cell arrays using import data command.

The text file can be seen here< http://dl.dropbox.com/u/41359279/SIG20015.TXT>:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/41359279/SIG20015.TXT

Since I have many of these files I really do not know how to solve the issue, can anybody help? Thanks

I can bring the data to matlab arrays using the lines below:

  • delimiterIn = ' ';
  • headerlinesIn = 100;
  • A = importdata(path,delimiterIn,headerlinesIn);

where path is the address I use to open the text file, but it takes all the data of a line to one cell array but I can not do any analysis on it.

Best regards

Saeed

Dear Walter and Pedro

Hi

Thanks for your answers, Yap at last I used textscan command to scan the data. And it works fine. I just did not want to use a loop for taking the results out because I thought it might be time consuming because I will have 10000 of those files. But it works fine. Thanks a lot.

Best regards

Saeed
