I have a file that looks like xml, but not xml.
I want to read the headers and extract the x and y value. I tried a few ways but not able to do it. Here is the construct
<begin>
<datapt>1<datapt>
<xu>mz<xu>
<xv>152<xv>
<yu>ab<yu>
<yv>100<yv>
<t>1412448635<t>
<end>

hello
nothing fancy - but it works !
aa = readlines('data.xml')
for ci = 2:numel(aa)-1
line = char(aa(ci));
ind1 = strfind(line,'>');
ind2 = strfind(line,'<');
data_out{ci-1} = line(ind1(1)+1:ind2(2)-1)
end
