I made a small loop to extract rows [range 183:262326] to make a column of 262144x1 column vector. The loop is very inefficient and takes a lot of time to execute. The code is below. Is there any more efficient way ? I dont want to use "Import Data" feature in MATLAB, I want to use code only.
Unfortunately, due to very large size of "ABC.txt" file, it could not be uploaded. However following the hints of both the commentors. I simply used readmatrix() to extract all the numeric data. The extraction is much efficient.
