I am trying to import all the text files to matlab and make it an array, I used the following funciton to read in all the text files. But it is given me an error saying that the columns of the second line does not match with the first one, is there a way to skip the first line in the text file?
This is the code that I used:
files = dir('*.txt');
for i=1:length(files)
eval(['load ' files(i).name ' -ascii']);
And this is the error:
Error using load
Number of columns on line 2 of ASCII file 10.txt must be the same as previous lines.
Error in Project_1B (line 29)
eval(['load ' files(c).name ' -ascii']);
