function varargout=wfdb2mat(varargin)

 wfdm2mat(recordName,signaList,N,N0)

    Wrapper to WFDB WFDB2MAT:
         http://physionet.org/physiotools/wag/wfdb2m-1.htm

 Converts a WFDB-compatible signal file to MATLAB/Octave *.mat file.
 The output files are recordNamem.mat and recordNamem.hea. The standard output of 
 WFDB2MAT will be saved in a file recordNamem.info. 

 Required Parameters:

 recorName
       String specifying the name of the record in the WFDB path or
       in the current directory.

 Optional Parameters are:

 signalList
       A Mx1 array of integers. Read only the signals (columns)
       named in the signalList (default: read all signals).
 N
       A 1x1 integer specifying the sample number at which to stop reading the
       record file (default read all the samples = N).
 N0
       A 1x1 integer specifying the sample number at which to start reading the
       record file (default 1 = first sample).


 
 NOTE: 
       You can use the WFDB2MAT command in order to convert the record data into a *.mat file, 
       which can then be loaded into MATLAB/Octave's workspace using the LOAD command. 
       This sequence of procedures is quicker (by several orders of magnitude) than calling RDSAMP.       
       This will load the signal data in raw units (use RDMAT to load the signal in physical units).
