Read line from file, removing newline characters
tline = fgetl(fileID)
tline = fgetl(fileID) returns the next line of the specified file, removing the newline characters. fileID is an integer file identifier obtained from fopen. tline is a text string unless the line contains only the end-of-file marker. In this case, tline is the numeric value -1.
fgetl reads characters using the encoding scheme associated with the file. To specify the encoding scheme, use fopen.
Read and display the file fgetl.m one line at a time:
fid = fopen('fgetl.m'); tline = fgetl(fid); while ischar(tline) disp(tline) tline = fgetl(fid); end fclose(fid);
Compare these results to the fgets example, which replaces the calls to fgetl with fgets.
