Hi, I am new to mathematica, and part of the program I have to write includes reading a file and manipulating the data for research. This file has around 22,000 numbers listed in it. I've already figured out how to look at those numbers and generate a histogram. However, what if I want to skip over numbers, meaning that now I want to read every 256th number until the end of my data set and save it each time under the same name, i.e data1, so I can generate a new histogram with these numbers. I've already tried the takedata option, without much luck. I'd appreciate any help.
