How do I read commas as decimal points when reading a text file?

19 views (last 30 days)
I have a file that I'm trying to read with numerical values that use commas as decimal points. For example...
0 21,875000 120,700000 0,000000
instead of...
0 21.875000 120.700000 0.000000
I've used textscan to read and parse lines in other files.
line = fgetl(fid);
data = textscan(line,'%d %n %n %n',1,'delimiter','\n');
Can I get Matlab to recognize the commas as decimal points?
