I have a pickle file of a python dictionary whose keys are tuples `(10, 11), (10, 12), (11, 10), (11, 12), (12, 10), (12, 11)`.
I use the following commands to read them
fid = py.open('file.pickle','rb');
data = py.pickle.load(fid);
At this point, I think the code is working correctly as
data.keys()
in MATLAB gives the correct answer as
dict_keys([(10, 11), (10, 12), (11, 10), (11, 12), (12, 10), (12, 11)])
The equivalent of dict in python is structures ([1]) so when I try to convert it to `struct` using
data=struct(data)
, I get an error as
Error using py.dict/struct
Field names must be non-empty character vectors or a string
scalars.
What does the error mean here?
