I've got a matlab question. This may be asked frequently. If so, I
apologize. Anyway, I have data that look like this

332700424 90905 336370986 A
332700424 90906 306356986 A
332700424 90912 326111986 B+
332700424 90940 311370986 A-
332700424 90915 311370986 B
332700424 90907 323555986 A-

They represent: instructor, course number, student, grade.

What I want to do is convert the grades into floating points (A = 4.0,
A- = 3.6667, etc.) and read the data into a 6 column by 4 row matrix.

I can't manage to get fscanf to handle it. Could someone please send me
a code segment that can read these data? I'd be more than happy to read
the data element by element in a loop, but I can't figure out how to do
that either.

Thanks in advance,
