i have 30000 thousand line of input file in text file, but i only need line 2618-3400.
imposible if i have to write manual to the end
how to write value C that consist of data from 2618-3400
%line 2618 to 3484
C =[A{2618,1} A{2619,1} A{2620,1} A{2621,1} A{2622,1} A{2623,1} A{2624,1}]
format long g
pf = sscanf(C,'%f')

Reading in the entire file is MUCH less complex than the method you're currently using. The data are read in as char just like the method you're already using. That's why you're applying sscanf.

I suspect this is what you need:
C=readfile('output.txt');%read the file to a cell array
Ca=C(2618:3484);%select the lines
%process every line to doubles
Cb=cellfun(@(x) sscanf(x,'%f'),Ca,'UniformOutput',false);
%convert to matrix

Read in the whole file at once. In this example I'm using fileread() because I'm unfamiliar with the FEX submission readfile() mentioned in your question.
C = fileread('myTextFile.txt');
Split the char array by lines into a cell array
Ca = strsplit(C,newline);
Extract text lines n to m
If you'd rather have a char array as output

You can probably imagine the frustration that led to me writing this function. I admit it is a strange use case to want a text file reader that handles UTF8 and ANSI for both Matlab and Octave. I even managed to find a bug in the Octave implemention of textscan.
If you have any suggestions for how to make the function more robust, please feel free to comment on the FEX (or send me an email, you can get the address from the function doc).
