Hi. I have a lot of data in .txt files. Now I'm using this code to read and import data to matlab:
fid=fopen(Data);
Result=fscanf(fid,Mask,ScanDimension)';
fclose(fid);
Is there any other ways, that may be faster than this one? Maybe save file as binary or write dll, which will read data and send it to matlab in c++? Thank you.

binary files would be faster. However, if each file is being read only once, it might not be worth the time to convert to binary. If files are used over and over again (possibly on different runs) then Yes, converting to binary is likely to be worthwhile.
