I need to read a file and store the values, so I can call these values in a for loop.

I have a file (names.txt) that is a list of file names. There is one file name per line. I need to read that file, so that each file name can be used in a for loop. I've tried to read the file as multiple strings with fscanf, but I get all the file names concatenated into one single string. How can I read the file into a single column array?

fid = fopen('your txt file') ;
S = textscan(fid,'%s','delimiter','\n') ;
S = S{1} ;
fclose(fid) ;
for i = 1:length(S)
S{i}
end
