Save workspace variables to an R data file.



View License

saveR('FILENAME') saves all workspace variables to the "R-file" named FILENAME.

SAVER('FILENAME', 'X', 'Y', 'Z') saves X, Y, and Z.

saveR can handle scalars, vectors, matrices, and cell arrays of strings. NaN's are saved as NA. Since R cannot handle structures, they will not be saved and a warning will be given.

Useful if you do not wish to load variables directly in R using a COM based interface (using MATLAB R-link #5051) or if you wish to use JAGS (, for instance.

It works perfect, thank you very much!

Also I have solved Enric Junque de Fortuny problem using source(filneDirectory) instead of load(filneDirectory).

Unfortunately, this doesn't work anymore:

In matlab:


In R:

Error: bad restore file magic number (file may be corrupted) -- no data loaded
In addition: Warning message:
file ‘data.Rdata’ has magic number '"outA'
  Use of save versions prior to 2 is deprecated

Excellent tool! Now I have available the best "statistics toolbox".

Great file! A simple and fast way to move everything to R--saved me tons of time trying to import from R.

NOTICE: after the workspace is saved in the R path it must be loaded using the source('filename') function.
 load('filename') can only be used on variables saved with the save('filename') function and will throw and error in this case.
