textread error handling

This happens a lot--I read in a large (200,000 lines) file generated from a serial port and a few records are "glitched".  textread aborts producing messages like:

warning: strread: unable to parse text or file with given format string
warning: called from
    strread at line 713 column 7
    textread at line 249 column 31
    drift at line 9 column 40
error: some elements undefined in return list
error: called from
    textread at line 249 column 31
    drift at line 9 column 40

I want textread to handle the error and continue. I can deal with corrupted data in the returned arrays from there. Of worse case, I would at least like textread to report which record it stopped on so I can look into it.

I didn't see an option for this in the doc. Did I miss it?
