I have run a model in a different program which has produced a large number of .txt files of output data.
I would like Matlab to open each file in turn and extract the value underneath "RF2" which is -4.2694476E+08 in the example below:
THE FOLLOWING TABLE IS PRINTED FOR NODES BELONGING TO NODE SET ASSEMBLY_SET-RF
NODE FOOT- RF1 RF2 RM3
1 -1.3405922E+07 -4.2694476E+08 0.0000000E+00
MAXIMUM -1.3406E+07 -4.2694E+08 0.000
AT NODE 1 1 1
The number of interest is on Line 4379 of every text file. I have no problems getting the Matlab code to open each file, but I can't seem to get it to extract the correct number. I would like to jump to Line 4379, get the program to disregard the 1 and the -1.3405922E+07 and ONLY take the -4.2694476E+08. The value of this number of interest is different for each file so I can't just get MATLAB to search for "-4.2694476E+08" each time. The number is ALWAYS in the same place for each of the files.
Would anyone be able to point me to a way of getting MATLAB to extract this number? Many thanks
