I am having a strange problem and thinking I can use MATLAB to solve it.
I have text files with content as below:
 7.9862668e+001 7.8140733e+001 8.0422936e+001 8.2806563e+001 8.3409122e+001 8.5673324e+001 8.7745376e+001 8.7303741e+001 8.5174770e+001 8.4144757e+001 8.3794223e+001 8.6131919e+001 8.7120891e+001 8.8307760e+001 8.8322351e+001 8.7581641e+001

What I want is to change the format of these numbers. For e.g. I want 7.9862668e+001 to change to 798.62 and so on for all the numbers.

Thank you in advance.

Dear dhiraj,

Read the file using:
  V = fscanf(fid, '%g ');
Write the new file:
  fprintf(fid, '%.2f ', V);

Kind regards, Jan
