According to a StackOverflow post, one can use scipy to read a matlab file, but it does not support the latest format Version 7.3 and later. Instead, one can use h5py since the format Version 7.3 and later follows HDF5.
Then, I looked for a solution to read a matlab file by using h5py and found another StackOverflow post, which describes how to extract the names of variables and their values. Since I know that Panda‘s DataFrame is good to deal with labelled datasets, I dug Pandas documents. What is possible is to convert a dict to Pandas Series. I think it is because the array for each label can be multi-dimensional.
import numpy as np import pandas as pd import h5py f = h5py.File('FileName','r') dataset = dict() for name, data in f.items(): if type(data) is h5py.Dataset: dataset[name] = data.value series = pd.Series(dataset)
So one can address the content of a variable
