After loading in a data file, the following variables are assigned to the individual columns of the data file:
pressure1=dataFile(:,1);
temperature1=dataFile(:,2);
humidity1=dataFile(:,3);
...
If I plot all the columns using a for loop,
for i=1:47
figure;
Plot(dataFile(:,i))
title
saveas
close
end
then what to write in the title line so that it automatically puts 'pressure1' as the title when i=1, 'temperature1' as the title when i=2, 'humidity1' as the title when i=3, and so on? Also, how to use the saveas command (or any other alternative) so that the figure gets saved in the variable names, i.e. pressure1.jpg, temperature1.jpg, humidity1.jpg etc.

Althoug meaningful names of variables are a good programming practice, they should not carry information which is used for processing. The output of a program should be the same, if a variable is renamed. Then:
NameList = {'pressure1', 'temperature1', 'humidity1', ...}
for i=1:47
figure;
plot(dataFile(:, i))
title(NameList{i})
end

for i=1:47
figure;
Plot(dataFile(:,i))
str = strcat('pressure',num2str(i)) ;
title(str)
saveas(gcf,str,'jpg')
close
end
