To remove all whitespaces within the text:
str = regexprep(fileread('temp.txt'),'\s+','')
Or to only remove newlines and carriage return characters:
str = regexprep(fileread('temp.txt'),'[\n\r]+','')
I tested these on this file:

file = textread('text.txt', '%s', 'whitespace','');
file will be a cell array containing the string you want.
