How to write strings and numbers to a text file

57 views (last 30 days)
Hi,
I need to write a data whcih comprises strings and numbers to a text file (as shown below). The data is repetitive with some changes ( the text in bold changes every time). So, I want to use a loop to write this data to a text file . How can I do it through matlab...
Any help and ideas are appreciated....
*DIM,table_press_data_1,TABLE,6146,120,1,PN,PT
*TREAD,table_press_data_1,'press_data_1','csv','',0
*DIM,array_press_data_1,ARRAY,6146,120,1,,,
*DO,i,1,TMSTPNUM1,1
*VFUN,array_press_data_1(1,i),COPY,table_press_data_1(1,i)
*ENDDO
*DIM,table_press_data_2,TABLE,6146,120,1,PN,PT
*TREAD,table_press_data_2,'press_data_2','csv','',0
*DIM,array_press_data_2,ARRAY,6146,120,1,,,
*DO,i,1,TMSTPNUM2,1
*VFUN,array_press_data_2(1,i),COPY,table_press_data_2(1,i)
*ENDDO
*DIM,table_press_data_3,TABLE,6146,120,1,PN,PT
*TREAD,table_press_data_3,'press_data_3','csv','',0
*DIM,array_press_data_3,ARRAY,6146,120,1,,,
*DO,i,1,TMSTPNUM1,1
*VFUN,array_press_data_3(1,i),COPY,table_press_data_3(1,i)
*ENDDO

To write the data onto a file in MATLAB save the data as a string (concatenate using the 'strcat' function) and use the 'fprintf' command to write onto a text file. In order to incorporate a ' into your string use double ' , i.e. str = 'John''s' will store the string John's into the variable str.

Do you really want to create:
*DIM,table_press_data_1,TABLE,6146,120,1,PN,PT
*TREAD,table_press_data_1,'press_data_1','csv','',0
*DIM,array_press_data_1,ARRAY,6146,120,1,,,
*DO,i,1,TMSTPNUM1,1
*VFUN,array_press_data_1(1,i),COPY,table_press_data_1(1,i)
*ENDDO
...
Or is "table_press_data_1" a placeholder for something?
To get the shown text:
pattern = [ ...
'*DIM,table_press_data_%d,TABLE,6146,120,1,PN,PT\n', ...
'*TREAD,table_press_data_%d,''press_data_%d'',''csv'','',0\n', ...
'*DIM,array_press_data_%d,ARRAY,6146,120,1,,, \n', ...
'*DO,i,1,TMSTPNUM1,1\n', ...
' *VFUN,array_press_data_%d(1,i),COPY,table_press_data_%d(1,i)\n', ...
'*ENDDO\n\n'];
[fid, msg] = fopen(FileName, 'w');
assert(fid ~= -1, 'Cannot open file %s: %s', FileName, msg);
for k = 1:17
fprintf(fid, pattern, repmat(k, 1, 6));
% Perhaps this is faster:
% fwrite(fid, strrep(pattern, '%d', sprintf('%d', k)), 'char');
end
fclose(fid);
If "table_press_data_1" is a placeholder, please explain, in which format the real data are stored.

hi, if you use latest matlab 2022a, you can use new matlab build-in function WRITELINES
