What can I use instead of the 'load(*.mat)' command? I want to load a mat file in workspace and after that to assignin all these variables (parameters) because at a given moment I need to get the variable values by using the 'evalin' command..
Thanks! Diana

Discussion in the original question of "assignin" and "evalin" imply that Diana is attempting to store the values in to a different workspace. importdata() and matfile() do not help in storing values to a different workspace.

Using assignin() and evalin() are discouraged. "Poofing" variables into workspaces can have a number of odd side effects, and makes the code difficult to read. It would be better to load() the .mat into a structure and return the structure from the function call and access the fields of the structure.
