Updated 1 Sep 2016

View License

This is an update to Stuart McGarrity's MDF Import Tool, which brings data from v3.0 MDF (.dat or .mdf) files into the MATLAB® environment.
Calling 'mdfimport' without parameters brings up an interactive app. Calling 'mdfimport' with parameters reads the signals in directly.
New to this release is the function 'importMDF3' which allows the user to read an MDF file into a function's local workspace. Type doc importMDF3 for instructions and an example.
Instructions: Unzip attached files and place them on your path or in the current directory. Type mdfimport to run the app or call the importMDF3 routine to perform direct imports.
