I have an Excel file from which I want to read the entire first column into Matlab and have as an output how many times given letters occur.
However, the problem is that some of the letters have an apostrophe attached to them, for example:
In the string above, s should be treated as a separate thing which has nothing in common with s'. So the frequency should show 1 for each of the letters, i.e.:
I have tried many things which I found of this forum but none of them has worked so far. One of the basic problems I encountered was loading in the file into Matlab due to the apostrophe, not to mention creating a proper table with frequency.
I would be very grateful for some help!
