I am trying to write a matrix to a file. The program is
then going to repeat the process and write a new set of
data from the same matrix into the same file. I want to
write the second row of data underneath the first row of
data. I thought this MatLab code would write the command:

dlmwrite('timestep.csv', elements, '-append');


This is the error that I am getting.
"Could not open file timestep.csv"


I don't know what is wrong with the command. Could you
tell me what I am doing wrong and what the "append" means.

Double-check the command that you used to originally create
the file. You might find, for example, that the first time
around you wrote to the file 'timestep.cvs' (wrong extension)
