read (MDFDatastore)

Read data in MDF datastore


data = read(mdfds)
[data,info] = read(mdfds)



data = read(mdfds) returns data from the MDF datastore mdfds into the timetable data.

The read function returns a subset of data from the datastore. The size of the subset is determined by the ReadSize property of the datastore object. On the first call, read starts reading from the beginning of the datastore, and subsequent calls continue reading from the endpoint of the previous call. Use reset to read from the beginning again.


[data,info] = read(mdfds) also returns to the output argument info information, including metadata, about the extracted data.
