Hey,
I have a txt file with 100 rows and 100 columns of zeros and ones.
Txt file looks like: (There is a space between each rows)
10100101000101...
01010001010100...
I want to read each row number by number, and then move onto reading the next row. Finally, I would have an array (either 1 dimentional or 2 dimentional) with 10000 numbers. How can I do this?
Thank you!

"I want to read each row number by number, and then move onto reading the next row. "
Why?
Just read the file and process it sequentially if desired -- there's nothing to be gained by reading piecemeal.

Hi Zulkuf,
From what I understand from your query is that you want to read all the numbers (which are in text form) from the txt file in an array.
You can try the fscanf method to accomplish the same.
You may also refer to the below discussion thread on the similar lines:
Thanks

Tip: format '%1d' does it quite nicely.
