Hi Guys! I have trouble plotting .mat format files. The error message is "Unable to read MAT-file. Not a binary MAT-file. Try load -ASCII to read as text". Is there anyone can help why these files are unreadable and How they can be fixed? knowing, the files are Simulink outputs!
Thanks in advance,

No actually I use Matlab 2017a.

I see 2 options:
  1. This is not the file you try to load. Maybe you are working in a different folder than you expect.
  2. The file is really damaged. Then it will be impossible to open it. This is the definition of "unreadable". Do you have a backup of the file or can you re-create it?
What do you see if you run the code from Walter's code?

I should also point out that I ran these codes on the supercomputer in my school. when I use my own pc no problem at all. knowing that the supercomputer unit also use MatlabR2017a
