Hello, I have a folder of 751 text files..Now i have to run a loop to load all text files from the directory and then perform some operations on each text file..if suppose,i loaded a text file,now from the text file,i have taken a first row.. if suppose i have text file of size 58*3.then i loaded first row as A(1,:)..again i have to convert each element from the row into their equivalent binary numbers with defined bit size..suppose,i have a row [A B C ],then i converted each element as X=de2bi(A,9); Y=de2bi(B,10);Z=de2bi(C,9)..then forms a 1*28 string..so,the loaded text file must form a row vector of size 58*28,if the file size is 58..so,finally the output must be 751*28,where 751 are total files in the folder..I am able to form row vector only for 1 text file,but i want to get row vector for a folder of text files..help me to solve this issue..
Code which i tried..
filePattern = fullfile('dir name', '*.txt');
txtFiles = dir(filePattern);
n=length(txtFiles);
for k = 1:n;
baseFileName = txtFiles(k).name;
fullFileName = fullfile('dir name', baseFileName);
sprintf('%s\n', fullFileName);
end
[p q]=size(A{k});
for s=1:p
for t=1:q
[m n]=size(A{s,t});
L=A{s,t};
%L=R{1,1};
for i=1:m
for j=1:1
N=L(i,j);
B=L(i,j+1);
C=L(i,j+2);
X=de2bi(N,9);
Y=de2bi(B,10);
Z=de2bi(C,9);
K=[X Y Z];
Q(i,1:28)=K;
end
end
end
end
I have attached the folder of text files..

no,actually the final output must contain all files i.e 750 files,which inturn each file must contain filesize*28..

P = 'absolute/relative path to where the files are saved';
S = dir(fullfile(P,'*.txt'));
for k = 1:numel(S)
F = fullfile(P,S(k).name);
S(k).data = [de2bi(M(:,1),9),de2bi(M(:,2),10),de2bi(M(:,3),9)];
end
The structure array S has size 751x1. If you want all of the data in one numeric matrix, then do this:
Z = vertcat(S.data);
Note that Z has size 39977x28, because every file has multiple lines of data.
