Updated 6 Sep 2007

Read a CSV file that contains both text and numeric columns, without having to manually specify the column type using %f, %s, etc.

MATLAB functions such as "textscan" that can read files with columns of both text and numeric values require the user to specify the data type of each column, which can be tedious for anything but the simplest file. Instead, this function determines each column's data type automatically.

Creates a MATLAB structure from the data, with fieldnames matching the headers in the file.
