As far as I can tell from reading the documentation for textread, those input arguments don't do anything special. They merely explicitly tell textread to do the default stuff ('' means don't skip any particular characters and -1 means read the whole file). It looks like the -1 can be omitted, but the '' (format specifier) needs to remain.
