EXAMPLES

#include "matio.h"

int
main(int argc,char **argv)
{
    mat_t    *matfp;
    matvar_t *matvar;

    matfp = Mat_Open(argv[1],MAT_ACC_RDONLY);
    if ( NULL == matfp ) {
        fprintf(stderr,"Error opening MAT file %s,argv[1]);
        return EXIT_FAILURE;
    }

    matvar = Mat_VarReadInfo(matfp,"x");
    if ( NULL != matvar ) {
        Mat_VarPrint(matvar);
        Mat_VarFree(matvar);
    }

    Mat_Close(matfp);
    return EXIT_SUCCESS;
