Oh, dpb! You remind me of Don Quixote tilting at windmills. TMW is never going to change this. We must adapt.
In practice, what I do is write a Fortran program that I run outside Matlab to re-write the file in a format Matlab will accept. If mex worked with gfortran, I'd do it within Matlab. Alternatively, you can import the file into Excel with fixed format and write it out as .csv or .xls.
