i have a really large ascii file that contains about 23,46,503 number of lines. i need to read them to a table with data types of each column as only text and number. i tried to import them using import data tool but it is taking forever to scan and parse the data (im using matlab 2019a). can anyone suggest me a faster approach to read the file to a table please. i even tried codes such as readtable(), dlmread(), fopen, fscanf etc. nothing works and it is throwing error.
it would be of great help if anyone helps
