My goal is to pass a blob of data out of a function that contains a .mat file. Currently I can get close to the desired behavior with the following snippet.
fid = fopen('functionspace_data.mat');
blob = fread(fid, inf, '*uint8');
But I need to do a similar thing without the use of files in the middle of the code. The format of the blob does not need to be .mat, but does have to be in a format that when converted to a file can quickly reload my function space.
Thanks in advance, Mike
