I'm used to MATLAB, but this new job has me using MATHCAD instead. Normally, I would use M-files to code what I want to do, and automate the whole process. MATHCAD's programming functionality seems quite limited. I am curious to know if it is possible to import data from a text file, parse the columns of that data into separate vectors, and then plot the data, all within a program like I can do with MATLAB, or do I have to click and open a new graph each time I want to plot data. I have multiple data files that need to be imported and the ability to automate the process would save me a lot of time.
