Convert .000 file to .mat file - oceanographic raw data files

Hi matlabers!
Here is a very specific questions for oceanographers, but perhaps other people can also answer me...
I am dealing with raw data files coming from RDI oceanographic instruments. They have an extension .000 (binary file). I will need to convert them into .mat files.
I know that Nortek has developped a tool named bin2mat, which converts their raw data files (.aqd, .adp,...) into .mat files, is there any similar tool for RDI instruments?

thanks in advance for your attention,
Camille.

Run BBConv on the .000 file and you will get a .csv file that is
easily imported into Matlab.

Ey tideman, thanks a lot!
what is bbconv... a matlab program? where can I get it?
Thanks a lot to answer so quickly!!!
(I also found another maltab program named rdi2cdf, but installing mexfiles is quite borring...
wait for your answer!

No, it's not Matlab, it's one of the RDITools.
Go to the RDI webpage and look for RDITools.
Google found it here:

Hi Tideman,
Thanks for you reply and sorry to answer you so late.
In fact I am searching for a tool which is not a program, but a matlab tool (as Nortek created the bin2mat function which converts the .aqd files into .mat files, and bin2mat can be alunched from matlab), because I am trying to figure out how to process thousands of raw data files which come from an online AWAC. That means that I have looooots of files, so it is not possible for me to launch BBConvert, or WinMON, or whatever program... I need a tool which allows me to enter in the binary raw file...
any idea?
Thanks in advance!
