Hello Guys, i need to create a "big" Variable but my Memory(4GB) is not big enough so i want now to split it into some numbered .mat-Files. With this code i would have the Variable Buff with 6.765.201 rows and 4 columns:
Buff = zeros(numel(1350:2:1450)*numel(-150:2:-50)*numel(825:2:925)*numel(1225:2:1325),4);
Ctr = 1;
for step1 = 1350:2:1450 for step2=-150:2:-50 for step3=825:2:925 for step4=1225:2:1325
Buff(Ctr, 1) = step1; Buff(Ctr, 2) = step2; Buff(Ctr, 3) = step3; Buff(Ctr, 4) = step4;
Ctr = Ctr+1; end end end end
But i want that matlab create Buff with 1 to 500.000 rows and 4 columns into saving_Buff_001.mat then the next 500.000 to 1.000.000 rows and 4 columns into saving_Buff_002.mat and 1.000.000 to 1.500.000 to saving_Buff_003 and so on...
My idea was something like this, but matlab creates first the big variable and then starts splitting
idx = mod(Ctr-1,500000)+1; if idx == 500000 index = Ctr/500000; save(sprintf('saving_Buff_%03d.mat',index),'Buff'); end
Hope somebody can help my, big thanks

In addition to memmapfile, there is also matfile, and you could put the whole thing in one file. No need to split into multiple files, as far as I can see, though I would recommend writing column-wise instead of row-wise
for i=1:4 matObj.Buff(:,i)=...; end
