Hello all,
I am reading in text files of the following format and would like to extract just the Peak frequency value (6.8 below) and put it into an array. What is the easiest way to do this? Thanks, fairly new to MATLAB.

Sample Rate (Hz) = 2000.00
Peak frequency (Hz) = 6.8 Resolution (Hz) = 0.2

Try this
str = fileread('data.txt');
peak_freq = regexp(str, 'Peak frequency \(Hz\) =[\s\t]*(\d*\.\d*)', 'tokens');
peak_freq = str2double(peak_freq{1}{1});
data.txt file is attached.

One approach, which only works if these files dont change would be to read in and point to directly where the value is.
fname = 'C:\Users\<username>\Desktop\SampleFile.txt';
FID = fopen(fname);
x = textscan(FID,'%s');
freqVal = str2double(x{1,1}{15,1});
This looks directly at the location of the freq, that is if this file format never changes. Another method would be to use fgetl to extract each line, and search for your key terms, such as:
fname = 'C:\Users\<username>\Desktop\SampleFile.txt';
FID = fopen(fname);
loopcnt = 1;
while loopcnt
temp = fgetl(FID);
if any(strfind(temp,'Peak frequency (Hz) ='))
startI = regexp(temp,'=','once');
stopI = regexp(temp,'Resolution','once');
Freq = str2double(strtrim(temp(startI+1:stopI-1)));
