How to store and print comments from a script

5 views (last 30 days)
I have an .m file that looks like this:
C = [1 1 0 0 0;
1 0 1 0 1;
I am trying to get the information from the header and print it later in my script. So I'm calling the m file to get the variables, but don't know how to get the comments to print later. I know typing help (name of script) will make it appear, I just don't know how to store it. Anyone?

helpText = help('yourMATLABFileName')
Also, you may then want to split each line into a separate string
lineByLine = regexp(helpText,char(10),'split')
If you want more than the help text, check out the fileread function
doc fileread
