IO_readTraffString.m
% IO_readTraffString
% 
% Usage: [traff_trafficMatrix, errmsg ,errorFlag] = IO_readTraffString(traffString)
%
% Abstract: This function reads a traffic string, that is, a string of
% characters equal to a string of a  Traffic File (*.traff). A Traffic File
% (*.traff) contains the  Traffic Matrix, that is, the table of the
% traffic demands for all the possible node pairs. 
%
% In the whole file the columns (fields) are separated by TABS and the rows
% by RETURNS. Each field column is represented  according to C language
% FORMAT. The FORMAT is a string containing C language conversion specifications. 
%A conversion specification controls the notation, alignment, significant digits, 
%field width, and other aspects of output format. The format string can 
%contain escape characters to represent nonprinting characters such as 
%newline characters and tabs. Conversion specifications begin with 
%the % character and contain these optional and required elements: 
% Flags (optional) 
% Width and precision fields (optional) 
% A subtype specifier (optional) 
% .Conversion character (required) 
%
% Arguments:
% o	In: 
% 	traffString: String with all the characters to be written in a Traffic
%   File (*.traff)
%
% o	Out: 
%  traff_trafficMatrix(NxN): Average traffic flow offered between node pairs. The 
%  Traffic Matrix is a two-dimensional matrix with N (N: number of nodes) rows 
%  and N columns. An entry(s,d) means the average traffic flow from node 's' 
%  to node 'd', measured as the number of bits per second. 
%
% . errmsg: Error message. If the string is valid (errorFlag = 0),
%   errmsg='No Error'; otherwise, errmsg indicates the error in the string. 
%
% . errorFlag: If the phys string is valid, errorFlag = 0; otherwise
%   errorFlag = -1.

%We write the string into a temporary file
