Here are two formats I want to use. They both come from FORTRAN format statements. The first is 6F7.0,2F3.0,2I3,I2,6A4, while the second is 5A4,A1,7F7.0. Since they are in fixed field lengths and represent a row matrix, why can't I use a format statement that has alphanumeric (char/string), numeric (floating point) and integer (non-floating point) variables?
MATLAB gives me 'concatenated cell mismatch' or 'exceeded dimensions'.
