Re: Number of line in a text file

Ok. I have now a very efficient way to know the number of line in my text file. Is it now possible to read very quickly just the last line of the file ?
fgetl do not permit to acceed directly the last line of the file.
using dlmread with appropriate range is slow. Is there a quick way to get the content of the last line ?
Thanks for your helps.
