How can I input every file in a directory ending with .txt into my Matlab program while logged in through ssh?

I have a script/program that compares two inputs. I'd like the first input to stay the same throughout. For the other input, I want it to take in every single file ending with .txt in a directory, and execute the program.
How can I do so?
I'm working through ssh, so I'm not sure if that changes anything.
Also, would this code to run through all the files be placed in the command window or in my script?

"every single file ending with .txt in a directory," &nbsp
Try
sad = permute( dir( fullfile( folderspec, '*.txt' ) ), [2,1] );
for s = sad
fullfile( folderspec, s.name )
end

As your script takes two inputs, you should convert it to a function. Then create either a function (preferred) or script that calls upon it, using the techniques shown in

That's fine. This is covered in the second part of the above reference:
"The second method is if you want to process all the files whose name matches a pattern in a directory. You can use the DIR function to return a list of all file names matching the pattern, for example all .txt files or all .csv files, or all files named myFilennnn.dat (where nnnn is some number)."
