Hi all,
I'm working on a GUI that generates reports based on some input data. I'm currently trying to produce a text based output that can be printed. Ideally, I'd like to make and save a .txt file that can be copied into a LaTeX compiler.
So, from the callback on a pushbutton, how would I output a .txt file that could be saved somewhere?
This is my first experience with MATLAB coding, so any help would be appreciated. Even just pointing me in the right direction would be great.

Look up fopen, fprintf, and fclose. Your code will be something like this:
fid = fopen('filename.txt','w');
fprintf(fid,'%f %s\n',your_numeric_var,your_string);
fclose(fid);
