Problem 1995. Loading/Expanding a ZIP file from File Exchange

Created by Richard Zapor

This challenge is to load a ZIP file from Mathworks File Exchange and UNZIP the contents.

Input: url_link of ZIP'd file

Output: UNZIPPED MAT file

Verification: filename and size will be confirmed

Commentary: This challenge was inspired by some of my links going dead. Alfonso suggested utilizing File Exchange(FE). My first attempts to load a MAT was unsuccessful due to using the incorrect FE link. The nice matlab unzip function with a valid link led to an efficient method.
