Dear R-Experts,

>here again a question concerning matlab. With the command "matrixM=[1 2
>3;4 5 6]" a matrix under Matlab was constructed. It was than stored
>the command "save('matrixM.txt','matrixM')".

now I found my error in the matlab command for storing the data in a txt
file. You need to write "save('test.dat','matrixM','-ascii')" the result
is the new attached file test.dat.

>Now I tried to import the data in R with the help of the command

>An error occurred. 

I could import the file to R with the command "

But this is a spezial case. I specified the number of columns and rows.
How can I do this import without knowing those information?  

Has any one got an idea how to import the data and store it in R. In R I
want to make further calculations with the matrix. I just installed
R.matlab but could not find an example with could help me.

Thanks, Corinna
