loadmatfile

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

Syntax

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

loads a Matlab MAT-file into Scilab. The Matlab data types are converted into the Scilab equivalents.

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)
