fgetl

Read line from file, removing newline characters

Syntax

tline = fgetl(fileID)

Description

tline = fgetl(fileID) returns the next line of the specified file, removing the newline characters. fileID is an integer file identifier obtained from fopen. tline is a text string unless the line contains only the end-of-file marker. In this case, tline is the numeric value -1.

fgetl reads characters using the encoding scheme associated with the file. To specify the encoding scheme, use fopen.

Examples

Read and display the file fgetl.m one line at a time:

fid = fopen('fgetl.m');

tline = fgetl(fid);
while ischar(tline)
    disp(tline)
    tline = fgetl(fid);
end

fclose(fid);

Compare these results to the fgets example, which replaces the calls to fgetl with fgets.
