Hi,
Once you read the text data from your file, you can convert text to binary by using dec2bin function.
a = dec2bin("Some String");
The variable "a" will have the binary converted value.
For reading from text files you could refer to the following links of different read functions
Hope this helps.

dec2bin() will not work on string objects. It will work on character vectors (but remember that characters can have more than 8 significant bits.)

fid = fopen('FileNameGoesHere', 'r');
file_bytes = fread(fid, [1 inf], '*uint8');
fclose(fid);
%if needed
file_bits = reshape( (dec2bin(filebytes, 8) - '0').', 1, []);
file_bits would be a vector of 0 and 1 values.
