How to Convert Igor files to Matlab

9 views (last 30 days)
Hey, guys, I'm new to Matlab and I'd like to know if there is a way to open Igor files in Matlab. I have a .pxp file (Igor) and I need to open it with Matlab program. I browsed the whole net and didn't find a program that could convert .pxp to .mat. If there isn't a convertion program, does anybody know if there is a routine in Matlab that could help me?

If you have Igor Pro then you can use ActiveX to tell Igor to load the file and export it in a text format.

How big is the text file, and about how many values does it contain? Are they integers or double precision numbers? Is there a structure to the text file or is it just a big array? Do you need all of the information from the text file or just some of it, and if so would it be possible to determine at the time you were reading a particular line whether you wanted that line or not?
(I don't know anything about Igor files.)

Hi, Walter! I've already converted my file into a .txt one, but the problem is that it is so large that Matlab can't load it properly. Is there another way?
