Hey Guys, I have a .mat file where I have written all the directories I will use. Lets say one of the directory is 'C:\Users\md\Desktop\A_I_001'. I want to make this directory changed in each iteration. so, the 'j' value will change in each time. How I can do that? Thanks in advance.
load tmp.mat; j='directory'; a = j; A =dir( fullfile(a, '*.png') );

Load the mat-file content to a variable
S = load('tmp.mat');
Inspect S to learn how the folder names are stored. I can only guess and assumes that in the mat-file each folder name is in one string variable. If so this loop should work
for folder_name = transpose( fieldnames( S ) )
A = dir( fullfile( S.(folder_name{:}), '*.png' );

tmp is a scalar, 1x1. What does
show? And
S = load('tmp.mat')
Search a way to display the folder names in the command window and show the commands needed.
