Read all files inside more than one directory

3 views (last 30 days)
Hello, I have a data directory that has 2 more subdirectories which contain binary data in them. the binary data are chunks of 100Sa/s binary files of data taken over a period of time. I want to read all the data inside both directories and manipulate them. in addition, All data in each directory should construct a plot. so far this is what i have and I keep getting errors when i am trying to open the files.
for k=1:length(Files)
if Files(cnt).isdir, continue
fid=fopen(filedir(cnt).name, 'rb', 'ieee-be')%file open inside
timestamp = fread(fid,4,'uint32');
dt = fread(fid,1,'float64');
cols=fread(fid,1, 'uint32');%get the column size
rows=fread(fid,1,'uint32');%get the row size
data=fread(fid,[rows,cols],'double')% get the full data r x c

See my attached demo that recurses into all subdirectories and lists files.

use either comma or semicolon depending if you want to append horizontally or vertically.
allData{k} = [allData{k}, thisFData]; % Stitch side by side
allData{k} = [allData{k}; thisFData]; % Stitch vertically

Thanks @ Image Analyst so I decide to take the mean of allData{k}. Now the mean will be one value for each row. meaning a 1 x 8 matrix. I want to take each column of that matrix and feed inside a new array each time the loop read a folder of data files (k loop). meaning I want the average of all the files in folder one. take the 1st column and feed in an array, take the second and feed it in an other array. and so on. move on to the 2nd folder, it takes the 1st column and feed in the same array that contain the first column of the previous folder. then the same for the second folder and so on. If can help me it'd be much appreciated as I am stuck on this for a while now
