Deleting specific numbers from a textfile

1 view (last 30 days)
Hello, I need help with what should be pretty simple but its been a while since I've used matlab so I am rusty. What I am trying to do is erase the first three numbers of every 'section' of numbers in the attached file below, and each section is separated by '#', so for example in the first couple of sections, I want the numbers that are bolded to be deleted:
103 0.005 3.000 121.1164 122.5661 1.5000 119.3625 120.1322 1.5000 117.6086 117.6982 1.5000 115.8548 115.2643 1.5000 114.1009 112.8304 1.5000 112.3470 110.3965 1.5000 110.5932 107.9626 1.5000 108.8393 105.5287 1.5000 107.0854 103.0947 1.5000 105.3316 100.6608 1.5000 103.5777 98.2269 1.5000 101.8238 95.7930 1.5000 100.0700 93.3591 1.5000 98.3161 90.9251 1.5000 96.5622 88.4912 1.5000 94.8084 86.0573 1.5000 93.0545 83.6234 1.5000 91.3006 81.1895 1.5000 89.5468 78.7556 1.5000 87.7929 76.3216 1.5000 86.0390 73.8877 1.5000 84.2852 71.4538 1.5000 82.5313 69.0199 1.5000 80.7774 66.5860 1.5000 79.0236 64.1521 1.5000 77.2697 61.7181 1.5000 75.5159 59.2842 1.5000 73.7620 56.8503 1.5000 72.0081 54.4164 1.5000 70.2543 51.9825 1.5000 68.5004 49.5485 1.5000 66.7465 47.1146 1.5000 64.9927 44.6807 1.5000 63.2388 42.2468 1.5000 61.4849 39.8129 1.5000 59.7311 37.3790 1.5000 57.9772 34.9450 1.5000 56.2233 32.5111 1.5000 54.4695 30.0772 1.5000 52.7156 27.6433 1.5000 50.9617 25.2094 1.5000 49.2079 22.7754 1.5000 47.4540 20.3415 1.5000 45.7001 17.9076 1.5000 43.9463 15.4737 1.5000 42.1924 13.0398 1.5000 40.4385 10.6059 1.5000 38.6847 8.1719 1.5000 36.9308 5.7380 1.5000 35.1769 3.3041 1.5000 33.4231 0.8702 1.5000 31.6692 -1.5637 1.5000 29.9154 -3.9976 1.5000 28.1615 -6.4316 1.5000 26.4076 -8.8655 1.5000 24.6538 -11.2994 1.5000 22.8999 -13.7333 1.5000 21.1460 -16.1672 1.5000 19.3922 -18.6012 1.5000 17.6383 -21.0351 1.5000 15.8844 -23.4690 1.5000 14.1306 -25.9029 1.5000 12.3767 -28.3368 1.5000 10.6228 -30.7707 1.5000 8.8690 -33.2047 1.5000 7.1151 -35.6386 1.5000 5.3612 -38.0725 1.5000 3.6074 -40.5064 1.5000 1.8535 -42.9403 1.5000 0.0996 -45.3743 1.5000 -1.6542 -47.8082 1.5000 -3.4081 -50.2421 1.5000 -5.1620 -52.6760 1.5000 -6.9158 -55.1099 1.5000 -8.6697 -57.5438 1.5000 -10.4236 -59.9778 1.5000 -12.1774 -62.4117 1.5000 -13.9313 -64.8456 1.5000 -15.6851 -67.2795 1.5000 -17.4390 -69.7134 1.5000 -19.1929 -72.1473 1.5000 -20.9467 -74.5813 1.5000 -22.7006 -77.0152 1.5000 -24.4545 -79.4491 1.5000 -26.2083 -81.8830 1.5000 -27.9622 -84.3169 1.5000 -29.7161 -86.7509 1.5000 -31.4699 -89.1848 1.5000 -33.2238 -91.6187 1.5000 -34.9777 -94.0526 1.5000 -36.7315 -96.4865 1.5000 -38.4854 -98.9204 1.5000 -40.2393 -101.3544 1.5000 -41.9931 -103.7883 1.5000 -43.7470 -106.2222 1.5000 -45.5009 -108.6561 1.5000 -47.2547 -111.0900 1.5000 -49.0086 -113.5240 1.5000 -50.7625 -115.9579 1.5000 -52.5163 -118.3918 1.5000 -54.2702 -120.8257 1.5000 -56.0241 -123.2596 1.5000 -57.7779 -125.6935 1.5000
