MATLAB Script File
DataLab provides a means of exporting the data matrix as well as the class information vector to MatLabTM. It creates a script file (extension '.M') which defines two MatLab variables: INSPDAT (holding the data matrix), and CLASSINFO (a column vector containing the class information). In addition, the script contains a statement which displays a feedback on the size of the imported data when loaded in MatLab.
The precision of the exported data is corresponding to the number of significant export digits as defined in the DataLab operating parameters. Empty cells are replaced by the indefinite value (also specified in the general DataLab operating parameters).
