I am novice in Matlab . I'm trying hard to load a log file (that too, from specific line number to specific line number ) into Matlab and store that data in it into a variable.

I am currently working on a vlc project where I need to analyze the transmitted data sent using LED and recived data using camera. My requirement is to analyze frames from the video within specific intervals of time.
Every digit after the bitstream: in the log file is the transmitted bits
21:54:33,302 ( Hours : Minutes : Seconds, milli-seconds ) in the above log files is the exact time in which the bit is transmitted.
I need some pointers or suggestions to do:
  1. Loading log file to matlab code
  2. Loading the bitstream which was used in tranmission to a variable
  3. How to analyze frames between specific time intervals
  4. How to use information in the logfile to specify the time intervals
Any inputs from the community will be extremely helpful.

You can use the Import Tool to read data from your log file.
You can read the data into a table. You can then convert the table into a timetable object. You can see more articles on how to use these objects under the "Topics" section of each page.
