Brick Toolbox

by

 

The Brick Toolbox is a set of utility functions for Matlab.

a=fn_readasciimatrix(filename,nheaders)
function a=fn_readasciimatrix(filename,nheaders)
% function a=fn_readasciimatrix(filename,nheaders)
% 
% load a matrix from an ascii file with format like :
%   #blah blah
%   et reblah 45 blah
%   1.2 3 5.5
%   4   0 0 
%   3   3 14
% empty matrix is returned if file does not exist or if there is no numeric
% content at any line begin
% there is no verification that each row is the same length
%
% if 'nheader' is specified, first nheaders lines are skipped anyway
%
% See also fn_saveasciimatrix, fn_readdatlabview, fn_readtext, fn_readbin
