SciPy, mdict, appendmat=True, format='5', long_field_names=False, do_compression=False, oned_as='row')[source]

Save a dictionary of names and arrays into a MATLAB-style .mat file.

This saves the array objects in the given dictionary to a MATLAB- style .mat file.


file_name : str or file-like object

Name of the .mat file (.mat extension not needed if appendmat == True). Can also pass open file_like object.

mdict : dict

Dictionary from which to save matfile variables.

appendmat : bool, optional

True (the default) to append the .mat extension to the end of the given filename, if not already present.

format : {‘5’, ‘4’}, string, optional

‘5’ (the default) for MATLAB 5 and up (to 7.2), ‘4’ for MATLAB 4 .mat files

long_field_names : bool, optional

False (the default) - maximum field name length in a structure is 31 characters which is the documented maximum length. True - maximum field name length in a structure is 63 characters which works for MATLAB 7.6+

do_compression : bool, optional

Whether or not to compress matrices on write. Default is False.

oned_as : {‘row’, ‘column’}, optional

If ‘column’, write 1-D numpy arrays as column vectors. If ‘row’, write 1-D numpy arrays as row vectors.
