Say that I have a script.m file and within that file there are functions with different variables.
And then I have a txt file with a matrix of numbers that I would like to plug into those variables in the m file, how would I got about doing this?
I have columns of the matrix assigned to different variables, however I have no idea how to get the script.m file to communicate with the txt file so that it can do it's "plug-and-chugging".
Thank you for your time!
It is not possible to have functions inside a script file. Functions can only go inside function files.
To read values from a file, use load() or importdata() or uiimport() or csvread() or xlsread() or dlmread() or textscan() or the basic I/O functions such as fgetl() and fscanf().
There are lot of examples around of passing variables into functions. See http://www.mathworks.com/help/techdoc/ref/function.html
