Subject: problem in reading comma delimited data array

Hi,

I have to read comma delimited array data with nonuniform
rows,columns. I just needed to read these data into single array A.
I did like this:

A=dlmread(filename, ',' )

but this does not displays all data and introduces unwanted zeros.
What I need is just in the form of continous array.
A(1)=1157
A(2)=1088
....

A(n)=957

Could you please suggest how to accomplish this task?

One possibility:

data = fileread('nameOfMyDataFile.txt');
data(data==char(10)) = []; %get rid of newline characters
data(data==char(13)) = []; %get rid of carriage returns
data = str2num(data)'; % convert to a column of numeric data

You can use TEXTSCAN:

>> fid = fopen(filename);
>> d = textscan(fid, '%f', 'delimiter', ',');
>> d = d{1};
