Dear Alex,

What does $ExportFormats return? Is MAT contained in the list
returned? I have no problems exporting a matrix to a MAT file. I'm

In[6]:= $Version

Out[6]= 6.0 for Linux x86 (32-bit) (April 20, 2007)

The following export formats are supported:

In[1]:= $ExportFormats

Out[1]= {"3DS", "ACO", "AIFF", "AU", "AVI", "Base64", "Binary", "Bit",
"BMP", "Byte", "BYU", "BZIP2", "CDF",               "Character16",
"Character8", "Complex128", "Complex256", "Complex64", "CSV", "DICOM",
"DIF", "DXF", "EPS", "ExpressionML", "FASTA", "FITS", "FLAC", "FLV",
"GIF", "Graph6", "GZIP", "HarwellBoeing", "HDF", "HDF5",    "HTML",
"Integer128", "Integer16", "Integer24", "Integer32", "Integer64",
"Integer8", "JPEG", "JPEG2000", "JVX",    "List", "LWO", "MAT",
"MathML", "Maya", "MGF", "MIDI", "MOL", "MTX", "MX", "NB", "NOFF",

"UnsignedInteger8", "UUE", "VRML", "WAV", "Wave64", "WDX", "X3D",
"XBM", "XHTML", "XHTMLMathML", "XLS", "XML", "XYZ", "ZIP", "ZPR"}

I do not know if this list is machine dependent, though.

Kind regards,
