Hi all, Sorry for the how-to question (I don't normally ask these types of questions) but I'm a bit rushed on a job. I'll make it up by answering a few other questions. I need to read all the file names in the MATLAB path into an array, such that I can loop my program through each file without having to pass in file paths manually. Any ideas!? Thanks again, Paul

Try
list=dir()
all the file names under the specific folder will be listed and stored in the variable list

LS replies a slightly modificated output of DIR as a string. Parsing it afterwards to get a list of names wastes time compared with takeing the output of DIR directly.
