forming matrices depending on file name
1 view (last 30 days)
I have matlab files in a folder and there are, for example, several that have file names that start with M1, several that start with M9, several that start with M13, etc. I want to group the ones that start with the same letter and number into the same matrix and create separate matrices for different file names.
What matlab functions can I use to do this using for loops????
Thank you for your help in advance!

From my understanding, you want to retrieve all the files which start with a particular string into one structure.
You can use the dir() to list the files and folders which match a particular name.
s1 = dir ('M1*.m');
s2 = dir('M2*.m');
This code returns all the matlab files which start with 'M1' inside the folder 'myfolder' into a struct array 's1'. Similarly, all the files which start with 'M2' are retrieved into 's2' struct array.
