Retrieving one row of text.

Asked by Thomas on 9 Dec 2012

Hello,

I have a simple TAB delimited .txt file of the following:

DATE	U6RATE	U3RATE
1995-01-01	10.2	5.6
1995-02-01	9.9	5.4
1995-03-01	9.9	5.4

My first goal is to have the user input the date in the form: YYYY-MM-01m then retrieve the entire line which leads up to plotting a simple bar plot, U6RATE vs. U3RATE.

I have this so far:

%%choice function
YearPick = {'Please enter a year (YYYY-MM-01): '};
YP = inputdlg(YearPick);
YP = YP{1}

So I've turned it into a char type, but this is where I am stuck. Any help would be appreciated.

Three columns and one header line?

    DATE U6RATE U3RATE 
    1995-01-01 10.2 5.6 
    1995-02-01 9.9 5.4 
    1995-03-01 9.9 5.4

Then you want to select an interval in time - not just one row?

"simple bar plot, U6RATE vs. U3RATE". Wouldn't a scatterplot be better?

Thomas
