Hi to everyone,
I'm trying to read a txt file (ex. trial.txt) with matlab and put the value into a matrix without success. The text file is made up as follow:
(title "xxxxx")
(labels "Position" "xxxxxx")
((xy/key/label "line-a2")
0 0
1 1
2 2
3 3
4 4
5 5
6 6
7 7
8 8
9 9
10 10
My problem is to skip the first rows. Can someone help me?
thanks in advance

where skipRows is the number of rows you don't want to read at the start of your file and skipColumns is the number of columns you want to skip from the left hand side
