How do I manipulate a large row and column datafile and convert each of many bytes to decimal from HEX

2 views (last 30 days)
fileID = fopen('new 1.txt', 'r'); %read the .txt file containing data
formatSpec = '%f';
list = fscanf(fileID,formatSpec) % name of data is list
% extract even or Odd lines (use only one)
X1 = list(1:2:end,:); %keep odd rows
X2 = list(2:2:end,:); %keep even rows
Now heres the problem:
the script above works great for a single data row txt file as input...... but how can I perform every other row
extraction on something complicated like this list below with many columns and HEX.... all the FFD1 rows need to
be in one file and all the F02A in another the list will ultimately
grow to 1,000,000 rows length I want to end up with 2 x 500,000 row lists
This data is long, so obviously I wont be doing this by hand and pressing keyboard buttons etc
ultimately I need to separate the rows as stated above, ALSO then convert each byte in HEX to Decimal HELP!! thanks

Use readlines(), which will return back a string array, one entry per line. Extract the appropriate indices.
arrayfun() a sscanf call with '%*f %*x %x %x %x %x %x %x %x %x" format
