Hi,
I want to write code that returns the filenames in my current directory, but only those filenames with more than n characters.
My code so far:
directory = dir('*.*'); % specifiy files, leave out folders
% remove the two '.' and '..' folders at the top
if length(directory) >= 3
directory = directory(3:end);
end
But how do I select only those filenames with more than n characters? I thought about setting up a logical vector, but I don't know how to do that. Does anybody have any suggestions?
Many thanks,
Dobs

Yes, selecting the filenames with more than n characters is actually the goal because it's for an assignment.
