I have a text/ascii file that looks like below. The first line contains the variables names, and all lines beyond the first contain a mix of numerical and string values. The data is not stored in any specifc/ascending/descending order. What I'd like to do is load all the data into arrays (or structures?) for further manipulation/processing. All variables (beyond the first line) are separated by commas.
I've tried the FID=fopen(...) and then read one line at a time, but that's painfully slow as some of the data files are rather large.
X, Y1, Y2, Y3, Txt1, Txt2, Slope
