Need some help with re-formating a text.file using MATLAB?
1 view (last 30 days)
I am quiet new in MATLAB, and I wish to have you guys help with re-formating a text file. A portion of the input text.file is below:
It mainly contains two keywords: DATE (year month day) and CHANGE (following be a variable like '10' and a number like 1.0). What I want is to have it converted is the text.file below:
The changes includes: 1. Reformat the Date to (day, month, year) and month to be words. 2. have the data after each CHANGE into a single row and add "good" if the variable is '10' while "bad" if the variable is '101'.
I have a crazy long text. file with these two keywords, it would be great if I could have MATLAB to do it. Any help or hint would be highly appreciated!

Actually all you want to do is to replace the string
a = sprintf('''10''\n')
b = sprintf('''10'' good ')
c = sprintf('''101''\n')
d = sprintf('''101'' bad ')
The conversion of the first line is faster performed manually, if it is one file only, which is just "crazy" long.
If this matchs your problem:
s = fileread('YourFile.txt');
s = strrep(s, sprintf('''10''\n'), sprintf('''10'' good '));
s = strrep(s, sprintf('''101''\n'), sprintf('''101'' bad '));
[fid, msg] = fopen('NewFile.txt', 'w');
assert(fid > 0, msg);
fwrite(fid, s, 'char');
