MATLAB: How to skip the first row while reading a textfile

reading textfileslipping row

I have a textfile with the first row comprising strings. The rest of the rows are numbers. I need to read only the numbers (second row onwards upto the end of the file). The number of rows is not fixed. Any solution?

TP - try using importdata and specify the number of header lines (in your case, 1) which cause those header lines to be skipped. Other MATLAB file reader functions (for data import) can do the same thing too.
