So I have a text file with data like this, and i want to read it in such a way that first element goes into first array and second into second array.
0.000708 0.000595
0.000697 0.000562
0.000640 0.000551
0.000618 0.000551
0.000595 0.000528
so output should be something like
0.000595
0.000562
0.000551
0.000551
0.000528
all the above elements in one array and all the elements below in another array or vector
0.000708
0.000697
0.000640
0.000618
0.000595

Why? Why duplicate data but not just use the two column indices?
But, if you insist,
data=readmatrix('yourfile.dat');
A=data(:,1);
B=data(:,2);
clear data
Less hassle in creating the vectors would be to use
tAB=readtable('yourfile.dat');
tAB.Properties.VariableNames={'A','B'};

Check:
Table = readtable('InputFile.txt'); %Read text file in table format
FirstColumn = Table(:,1); % First column data
SecondColumn = Table(:,2); %Second column data
