You can use writetable to write to a text file.
writetable(data,'outputfile.txt');
If you really need this to be a .m file, you can make a new copy as .m and delete the original file.
copyfile('outputfile.txt','outputfile.m');
delete('outputfile.txt');

Abhishek,
In that case, what you have is a double array instead of a table (in Matlab parlance).
You can simply use csvwrite. Here's an example.
csvwrite('outputfile.txt',magic(10));
If you want the result to be .m format, just indicate the file name accordingly:
csvwrite('outputfile.m',magic(10));
