Hello, want to program to store a result to file, which dataset can both Matlab and C++ read?

I know Matlab can save it to .mat file but C++ may not be able to read it.

If you want a true database, there is the Database Toolkit.

But if you are talking about .mat files, then

  1. Yes, you can program C++ to read .mat files; but
  2. it is usually easier to transfer the data in binary such as by using fwrite()


OK, thanks. Will be careful on it. I do not think it affect me too much. :)

So if you address A(I,J) in MATLAB, it would be A[J][I] in C
