Merging the Data in the Text Files for the Number of "N" Text Files

1 view (last 30 days)
In my directory I have N numbers of text files and I want to read all of them with the datas that they contain. After that, I want to merge these N text files to just one text file. What I did was finding the text files in the directory and find their names, I could not read them and merge them. Thanks for your help.
close all
directory = 'C:\me\me\Desktop\directory';
fileList = dir(fullfile(directory, '*.txt'));
names_temp = struct2cell(fileList);
text_name = names_temp(1,:);

there's a lot of ways to read text files. For your purposes, I think fileread and fscanf functions might do well.
Then, you can merge them, which depends on the data type that will be output of your reading.
