while using the function fopen and textscan for text file i get this warning:
*Warning: The encoding 'windows-1255' is not supported.
See the documentation for FOPEN.

i googled the problem and found this:
if the problem is in the current encoding type, i can't change it the problem is that i can't change the encoding for example if i add this line to the function: slCharacterEncoding('Windows-1252') matlab won't run any commands.
and this is few of the files that i'm trying to read:
don't understand this error and what am i doing wrong, but i do get unexpected resaults.


Please upload the files together with the question. See the paper-clip button. I failed to download the m-file. The new-line characters were lost somewhere on the way.

The code runs here (R2013a,Win7) without any problems
"Warning: The encoding 'windows-1255' is not supported." &nbsp Matlab doesn't support 'windows-1255', (see fopen). Is your computer configured with 'windows-1255'?
fid = fopen( adress, 'r', 'n','windows-1250' );
"slCharacterEncoding" &nbsp is a Simulink function. AFAIK: it has nothing to do with textscan
