Python – Read .mat files in Python

file-iomat-filematlabpythonscipy

Is it possible to read binary MATLAB .mat files in Python?

I've seen that SciPy has alleged support for reading .mat files, but I'm unsuccessful with it. I installed SciPy version 0.7.0, and I can't find the loadmat() method.

Best Solution

An import is required, import scipy.io...

import scipy.io
mat = scipy.io.loadmat('file.mat')
