Convert a (rather complex) text file to mfile

1 view (last 30 days)
I have a text file which is just a scan of an mfile. I need to convert this into an mfile (spent ours on it but
unfortunately could not figour out how to do this). Please note that if I would only have one text file I could do this manually. So,
my question is about a bunch of files not a single file. So, I like to do this by coding. For this file I cannot use commands like str2func, unfortunately.
To make everything clear I am attaching a text file called temp.txt.
Thanks for your kind help in advance,

"I have a text file ... I need to convert this into an mfile"
m-files are text files, so you just need to change the extension from .txt to .m, right?
files = dir('*.txt'); % an appropriate call to dir() to get info about your files,
% e.g., if they are all in C:\Docs\, use files = dir('C:\Docs\*.txt')
for ii = 1:numel(files)
fullFileName = fullfile(files(ii).folder,files(ii).name);
[filePath,fileName,~] = fileparts(fullFileName);
movefile(fullFileName,fullfile(filePath,[fileName '.m']));
