Hi-
I have text file (T.txt).
"2" position is blank. I want to discover position "2" (Line 2)
fid = fopen('T.txt','r');
tline = fgetl(fid);

I'm about to discover that line two is empty.
What should I do?

if isempty(tline)

I see both a loop, and an fscanf which reads the whole file. I will continue with the loop.
Try a while loop.
feof means "end of file". ~feof means the loop hasn't finished reading the file yet.
First initialize some empty variables, and iterate or concatenate them in the loop.
n = 0;
Empty_line = [];
data = strings(0);
fid = fopen('T.txt','r');
while ~feof(fid)
n = n+1;
tline = fgetl(fid);
if isempty(tline)==1
% One way to concatenate:
Empty_line = cat(1, Empty_line, n);
else
% Another way to concatenate:
data = [data; tline];
end
end
fclose(fid);
For the data, you could use a string array, and concatenate. Before the loop, initialize it with
