Hi, I would like to preallocate my data space that comes from the importdata command, but I am having trouble because it is just a little too complicated for me. After I run the importdata in the loop I end up with:
x =
1x10 struct array with fields: data textdata
x.data is a 21x1248 double array
x.textdata is a 4x22 cell array
This comes from something similar to:
for fnum=1:10
fname=sprintf('file%02d.csv', fnum);
x(fnum)=importdata(fname, ',', 4);
end
what is the command I should run to preallocate this structure array?
Thanks!
