Choosing Applications to Read and Write MATLAB MAT-Files

Under certain circumstances, you might need to write a custom program to interact with MATLAB® MAT-file data. These programs are called applications to read MAT-files. Before writing a custom application to read MAT-file data, determine if MATLAB meets your data exchange needs by reviewing the following topics.

MATLAB supports applications written in C, C++, or Fortran to read MAT-files. To create the application, write your program using MATLAB APIs, then build using the mex command.
