    While reading the range doppler output dataset (which comes as .dat file), the output looks like gibberish. Could you let me know how to read it properly?

    This is the output obtained in MATLAB:

    x = importdata('xethru_pulsedoppler_byte_20190919_191024.dat')

    x =

    data: [9x2 double]
    textdata: {157x56 cell}

    >> x.data

    ans =

    NaN NaN
    NaN NaN
    NaN NaN
    NaN NaN
    NaN NaN
    NaN NaN
    NaN NaN
    NaN NaN
    4 4

    >> x.textdata

    ans =

    Columns 1 through 4

    (This continues for 157*56 cells, not pasting here on account of the length of message)
