Hi,

I have some binary files which I need to delete some data at the 
beginning of the file (to extract the raw data out of the file). I got a 
matlab file from a colleque but I would prefer if I could do it with ruby.

This matlab code does the trick:
	function m=write_rad(filename)
	file=fopen(filename);
	f= fread(file,'uint16');

	[r,k]=size(f);
	if k==1;
    		t=r-1048576;
    		m=f(t+1:r,:);
	end
	end % function

How can I do this in ruby? I'm completely lost.

Thanks
Wolfgang
