How to save results in a text file that can be read by windows and mac machines?

1 view (last 30 days)
Dear all,
I'm trying to save the results in a text file by pressing a button in the developed GUI. I want this to be possible for both Windows and Mac users. Is there any way to do so?
Before I use this code for creating an excel file and save the results. But for Mac users or if no excel program then it was a problem.
Excel = actxserver('Excel.Application');
Workbooks = Excel.Workbooks;
Workbook = invoke(Workbooks, 'Add');
Sheets = Excel.ActiveWorkBook.Sheets;
Sheet1 = get(Sheets, 'Item', 1);
Shapes = Sheet1.Shapes;

MATLAB on mac can read xlsx files but not necessarily xls files.
You can also write csv files.
Or you can use fopen, fprintf, fclose to write a text file.
