hello there,
I am very tired and I would need to read a string like this
tline = 'CHTRS95 46.521464753 6.567893633 460.487'
tline is a char, I want to put the first word in a string and the three numbers in a double.
All using this function:
sscanf(tline, ' %f %f')
(it is somehow wrong,
I get :"
Unable to perform assignment because the size of the left side is 1-by-2 and the
size of the right side is 0-by-0

split = textscan(tline, '%s%f%f%f');
txt = split{1}
numbers = cell2mat(split(2:end))
