Thanks. You might wish to pull from Savannah and get rid of your pre-rebased patch:

hg strip -r ec0fbf2f141

And from now on, you can push your own patches. :-)

Since 04fb96f4bea1 the type detection of gzipped files without header fails with some data.

The reason is because looks_like_mat_ascii_file fails if it's a gzipped file.

Below my testscrit which fails always

fid = fopen (fn,"w");
fprintf(fid, "%i %i %i %i\n",639, 25, 160, 978160);
fprintf(fid, "%i %i %i %i\n",687, 25, 171, 978160);
fprintf(fid, "%i %i %i %i\n",663, 31, 173, 978161);
fprintf(fid, "%i %i %i %i\n",663, 15, 154, 978161);
fprintf(fid, "%i %i %i %i\n",655, 21, 151, 978161);

## gzip it!
fn_gz=strcat(fn, ".gz");
cmd=cstrcat("gzip ",fn," -c > ",fn_gz)

c=load("file2.txt.gz")  #fails

If you change the 4.th line from "663, 15," to "663, 16," load works. Regards Andy
