How to alter data (multiply) from all the columns of multiple text files in a folder

5 visualizaciones (últimos 30 días)
I have multiple text files locate in a folder.The names of the text files varies.How shall call them & multiply all the values inside all the text files with 10^-6 in a loop.
Attached 3 text files for refernces.I've made a small code but its ineffective as file name changes and not a value of numstr.
filenames = 'Path1_Step_0001';
for i = 1:length(filenames)
s{i} = readmatrix (['Path1_Step_' numstr(i).'txt']);

this is my suggestion ... the natural sorting order of the files may not be critical here, but it may be helpful another day , so this is a bonus ... natsortfiles is available from the FEX : Natural-Order Filename Sort - File Exchange - MATLAB Central (
I found to save the data that importdata is a bit faster than readmatrix , I leave it to you to choose the best option;
% reading of data txt files
Folder = cd;
FileList = dir (fullfile(Folder, 'Path1_Step_*.txt'));
FileList_sorted = natsortfiles({}); % sort file names into order
M = numel (FileList_sorted);
for iFile = 1:numel(FileList)
FileName = FileList_sorted{iFile};
FileNamePath = fullfile(Folder, FileName);
% load the data : choose one or the other option
data{iFile} = importdata(FileNamePath); % faster
s{iFile} = readmatrix (FileNamePath); % slower

I'm sorry for my english.
Ummm actually I fixed the "last text" issue.
The problem that remains is that I have a folder which looks like this
each one of the subfolders has its own subfolders and so on.
The script that I'm running at the moment is :
Folder = 'C:\Users\sideris\Desktop\folder example';
FileList = dir (fullfile(Folder, '*.txt'));
FileList_sorted = natsortfiles({}); % sort file names into order
M = numel (FileList_sorted);
for iFile = 1:M
FileName = FileList_sorted{iFile};
FileNamePath = fullfile(Folder,FileName);
s{iFile} = readmatrix (FileNamePath);
data_out = s{iFile}*0.0001;
filename_out = Folder+"\"+[FileName(1:length(FileName)-4) '_out.txt'];
writematrix(data_out, filename_out,"Delimiter","tab");
That script only works if all my text files are in the same folder. Is there any way to make that script read all the txt files from every subfolder?
