Hello everybody,
I have a problem with the reorganization process of my experimental data.
Attached there is an example of a typical data set

I want to remove all the written texts and empty lines and I want to reorganize the blocks of data in a way to invert their order.
Do you have any suggestion?

Attach a ‘typical data set’ as a .txt or .mat file.

The data file you attached does not appear to bear a strong resemblance to the data file you quoted.
I chose to use textscan here because I have experience using it with files with interrupted formats, however this file appears to have no interruptions:
fidi = fopen('typical_data_set.txt','rt');
C = textscan(fidi, '%f%f%f%f %*f%*f%*f%*f%*f%*f', 'HeaderLines',1, 'CollectOutput',1);
fclose(fidi);
M = cell2mat(C);
Here ‘M’ is a (44006x4) double array.
A file with interruptions would simply require a while loop to loop through it, saving the individual sections. For an example, see: How to skip lines of Data in the middle of a text file . I believe that file was similar to the one you quoted.

Removed the generic code example. Nothing else changed.
