Read Matlab 7 .mat files in Matlab 6.5 -- SOLUTION

Thank you Dan for the suggestion of topic change (from MAT file format
R13 vs R14, Please Read even if you viewed other post).

I have submitted a linux x86 version of the load5 to the File Exchange,
i guess it will take a couple days to get up there.  If you need it
sooner, let me know.  Also, still looking for the Windows versions of
Matlab 6 dll's (libmx.dll, libmex.dll, libmat.dll) plus the .def files
and the mexversion so I can compile in Windows.  If you have these,
please reply so I can set up a way to get them from you.  Below is an
example using the load5 mex function from linux.  My MAT File I/O does
NOT depend on libmat (Matlab's routines for reading/writing MAT files)
