I'm trying to open a file in this function, for the purpose of using it in another function. However, when I call on it, it gives me the error in fread, as stated in the title. I believe this is a result of fopen failing to open the file. However, I'm not certain how to fix it. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
fileID = fopen(filename, 'rt');
[A,count]= fread(fileID,[2 inf], 'uint8');

the file name is PMHFIB_ORIGINAL.ATT. Is this file name invalid?
and I added the path below to the file in question, but I still recieved the same error.
addpath /Users/kira/desktop/PHYS4115Tables/'att';

filespec = fullfile( "/Users/kira/desktop/PHYS4115Tables/'att'", filename );
fileID = fopen(filespec, 'rt');
And show us the displayed message.
What's 'att' ? The name of a subfolder?
