I'm trying to plot this but I'm getting errors. Not sure how to fix them. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks much.

the error message is quite clear
Unable to find file or directory 'negm_profiles.txt'.
this file is not in your directory
double check by typing in your command window
dir *.txt
if you need more help , it's genrally a good thing to share your data files along the code

your code works fine with the provided txt files.
the next problem is here , here arrays size are not matching
uplots = u./Ue;
yplots = y./theta;
u and y are 300x1 arrays while Ue and theta are 8001x1 arrays
which one is the good size and how will you modify the code accordingly ?
