loadmatfile

loads a Matlab V6 MAT-file (binary or ASCII) into Scilab

Calling Sequence

loadmatfile(format,filename[,var1[,var2[,...]]])

loadmatfile(filename[,var1[,var2,[,...[,format]]]])

Arguments

filename

character string containing the path of the file (needed)

format

file format (if not given and file has extension ".mat", file is considered to be binary)

"-mat"

binary file

"-ascii"

option to force Scilab to read file as an ASCII file

var1, var2

character strings containing the name of the variables to load (only for binary files)

Description

Examples

A = rand(10,10);
B = sprand(100,100,0.1);
savematfile('test_matfile.mat','A','B','-v6');
clear;
loadmatfile('test_matfile.mat');
disp(A)
disp(B)

I've got crashes using this function

I have a .mat file with several tables inside
I call loadmatfile('...mat') and Scilab just closes itself
I have the same thing occuring with matfile2sci function

Nothing is converted and Scilab closes

Could it be because my .mat file is to complicated ?
