Newbie needs help

I'm trying to write my first program in MATLAB and it has been a year since
taking a beginner's course in C. The user's manual isn't much of a help
either. I would appreciate any assistance you can give. My first goal is to a
program that will take hourly neutron monitor data (from CD-rom) and return
daily averages from a chosen month.

The only input will be month and year, for example: "11/74".

The data is organised under directories named after the observatory, such as:
d:\durham\durham.74. This file includes 365 days from Durham, NC in 1974. For
searching, each day has a header that includes a julian date, as well as
month and day. The data is then given in several types of columns: hours
(1-24), counts per hour, and barometric pressure. At this point, I'm only
interested in the counts per hour.

So, anyway, I'm having trouble just figuring out the basic building blocks of
the code. Know any good after market books on programming in MATLAB?
