This is a very responsive ng. Thanks!
When I Import["file","MAT"] files, the variable name information is
lost. Is this the normal behavior? Or is there a switch I can specify to
import the variable names as well?
For example, if file.mat has two variables, foo (3x3) and bar (3x3), and
I Import it, all I get is 1 nested List for a result.
However, they are simply numbers with no names associated with the list.
I know I could do:
but I was wondering if there was a way to Import variable names without
specifying them explicitly. The information is in the .mat file. Why
doesn't Mathematica extract it?
Similarly, when I Export a matrix into a mat file, will the variable
name be lost?
