Requires: MathScript RT Module
m = fread_delimited(file, d)
m = fread_delimited(file, d, range)
m = fread_delimited(file, d, row, col)
Reads an ASCII delimited file.
|file||Specifies the file you want to read. file is a string|
|d||Specifies the delimiter that separates the values in the file. For example, a value of \t specifies a single tab character as the delimiter. d is a string.|
|range||Specifies the range of the data you want to read. range is a vector of four elements [a b c d], where [a b] is the upper-left corner of the data you want to read and [c d] is the lower-right corner of the data you want to read. You also can use Microsoft Excel spreadsheet notation to specify range, as in range = 'A1..B3'.|
|row, col||Specify the location at which you want to start reading the data. row and col are zero-based.|
|m||Returns the matrix.|
If you use this function in a stand-alone application or shared library and file is a relative path, LabVIEW searches for the file in the path where you installed the application or shared library. (Real-Time Module) If you deploy this function to an RT target and file is a relative path, LabVIEW searches for the file in the path returned by the Default Data Directory VI.
The following table lists the support characteristics of this function.
|Supported in the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine||Yes|
|Supported on RT targets||Yes|
|Suitable for bounded execution times on RT||No (affects entire script)|
In the following example, LabVIEW creates test.dlm in the LabVIEW Data directory. LabVIEW then reads the values in test.dlm and returns these values as a matrix.fwrite_delimited('test', magic(5), '/', 2, 2);
