(Originally posted on Doug's MATLAB Video Tutorials blog.)
Very often MATLAB users want to be able to process a set of files from a directory. In this video, I show how you can look through a directory seeking files of the form “data###.dat” and then returning the “###” as a number with any leading zeros removed. This makes use of regular expressions, but does not explain their theory much at all.
