Hello! I have a 'myfile.mat' which contains several structures struct1, struct2,... Now I would like to save a new added field to one of the structures let say struct1 but it is not working when reloading the .mat file the newfield is not there, any suggestions ?! thank you !
There are a couple good ways to do this. If your MAT-file has a lot of data stored in it, save using the -append flag. Another approach, particularly if you need to modify more than one of the struct arrays stored in the MAT-file, is to load into a struct and save that struct using the -struct flag.
data = load('myfile.mat'); data.struct1.newfield = 42; save('myfile.mat', '-struct', 'data')
With this approach you don't need to worry about overwriting a variable in your workspace that happens to have the same name as one of the variables in the MAT-file.
I have been googling for almost one hour but no result, this is the code that I am using to save the new added field but I lose all the other structures in my .mat file any ideas ?! thank you!
load ('myfile.mat','struct1') struct1.newfiled = myMatrix; save myfile struct1
Try looking at the function "matfile" in help. Matfiles are treated differently than other files, and you may need to set the 'Writable' property to true (Good Luck!). Example:
m = matfile('myfile.mat','Writable',true); m.struct1.newfield = newfield;
