Hi everyone
Is there a way to continue next line on this cd command? this is to make convenient for me to analyse data
cd 'D:\Onedrive\OneDrive -xxx\bbb\ccc\ddd\3. Simulation\3. Fluent Case\40um - 9\EquivalenceRatio_Osc\0.015\F100';
i tried this but it won't work
cd ['D:\Onedrive\OneDrive -xxx\bbb\ccc\ddd\3. Simulation\3. Fluent Case\40um - 9'...

Use cd as a FUNCTION call.
cd(['D:\Onedrive\OneDrive -xxx\bbb\ccc\ddd\3. Simulation\3. Fluent Case\40um - 9'...
Commands like CD are actually functions, where they can be used in either mode, either as a command or as a function.

Stephen is correct here, in that when you change directories, this forces MATLAB to do some additional work. However, when you just specifiy the directory to look in to read a file, that other work need not be done. As such, MATLAB will be more efficient.
Save those CPU cycles!
