File Information

Due to the Fortran-like(?) file format; loading a flout file would take ages using functions like textscan or fscanf in Matlab. Therefore using compiled C++ code the file is first converted to a txt file and then the header and data of the fiout file are quickly read into Matlab using the fscanf function.

Code assumes a predefined specific format for the FIOUT file; if it does not work for your files; have a look at the included *.cpp file; it should be easy to edit/improve this.
Thanks to Paul Groot, Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam for the C++ tips.

MATLAB release MATLAB 8.0 (R2012b)
Other requirements Please note that the filenames should both be inputted as full and complete paths, e.g.: (WIN) 'C:/Documents and settings/UserX/Desktop/file1.fiout' (MAC) '/Users/username/Documents/Dir/file.fiout' ['~/Desktop/file.fiout' or 'test.fiout' will not work]
