The Octave binary format is briefly described in the comments before
the function read_binary_data() in  The value of the
`magic number' mentioned there can be either Octave-1-L or Octave-1-B,
which serves to identify that the file is an Octave binary data file,
version 1, and that it was written on either a little-endian or
big-endian machine.

The Matlab data file format is described in some Matlab manual.  I
think it is the `External Reference Guide'.

Code for reading and writing both of these formats is in
(Yes, it would be useful to have these functions in a separate library
that could be called from C, C++, etc.).
