Hello,
After using a visdiff(file1,file2,'txt') expression, it opens a window with the differencies between the two files, which is exactly what I'm looking for.
But how do you use it as an output ?
At the end, there is :
Number of matching lines: XXX
Number of unmatched lines in left file: XXX
Number of unmatched lines in right file: XXX
How do I get each of them (not the number but the output)
Cheers

Hi Maha, this might help you

comparison = visdiff('test.m', 'test2.m');

fp = fopen('diff.txt', 'w');

fprintf(fp, '%s', comparison);

fclose(fp);

the diff.txt file will contain the output
