copy a string from filename and detect a new file in the folder

1 Ansicht (letzte 30 Tage)
I have a list of files like that :
the numbers correspond to date, for ex : 13/04/2012
Firstly,I would like to extract only the numbers in the filename and save them to a vector "date". Then I will display my data following this vector "date".
Secondly, for each time I run my code, I would like to detect if a new data file is added, for ex : data_acc_10052012.mat, etc. If yes, I redo the extraction of date and add it to the vector "date".
May anyone have an idea to do all these things please ?
Thanks for all your answers

As usual it would be helpful if you show, what you have tried so far. I could imagine, that you have at least some lines of the code including the DIR command. If you post this, our suggestion could match your code.

function ShowFiles(Folder)
persistent shownAlready
list = dir(fullfile(Folder, '*.mat'));
name = {};
if ~isempty(shownAlready)
name_bak = name;
name = setdiff(name, shownAlready);
shownAlready = name_bak;
blockStr = sprintf('%s;', name{:});
number = sscanf(blockStr, 'data_acc_%2d%2d%4d.mat;');
dateV = transpose(reshape(number, 3, []));
dateD = datenum(dateV(:, 3), dateV(:, 2), dateV(:, 1));
[dum, order] = sort(dateD);
for i = order
<do something with the file: fullfile(Folder, name{i})>
