I have the .txt file above, which I am trying to extract numeric values from. For example, I would like to extract just the numeric value from line 2 to say time = 5723. Or extract the numeric value from line 4 to say layerheight = 0.2. I am having a lot of issues with data types, where I can only bring in lines as a string. Then, they come up as a cell array, which I cannot seem to get the numerical value out of. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
