there's another problem that I've got: although MAtlab 7.1 help is pretty straightforward in terms of length of array, it says:
You can open arrays having up to 2^19 (524288) elements, which is eight times more than the previous limit, 2^16 (65536).
But when I do this (i.e. import array with about 80k entries), I get a message Cannot display variables with more than 65536 rows or columns.
Is there any way to override this issue?
