    I have problem finding help in the matlab help. It's a simple problem
    and I hope someone can help me thanx!

    I want to save certain matrices, say X and Y, into a text file so
    that in the future I can read from it in other m files.

    So how do i create a ini file with headers say [x] and [y]?

    Then how do i read from the ini file with headers [x] and [y]?

    I know there are functions like dlmwrite and dlmread. I would think
    that I am able to write using dlmwrite. I would have problem reading
    from the file using dlmread as I would not know the size of the
    matrix if i were to write all the matrices into one file.

    Thank you!! =p

    that in the future I can read from it in other m files.

    a couple of hints:
    1) see:
    help diary
    2) copy/paste from the command window into a text file with extension
    3) others will have better ideas.
