Question: EigenValues/Vectors for large matrices

I have to find eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix whose
size can become quite large (using "EIG" is not an option).
The matrix is tridiagonal, and I only need a few eigenvalues and
eigenvectors. I know this can be done using the EISPACK routines, "jtridib"
(that finds eigenvalues) and "jtinivit" (that finds the eigenvectors),
but to my surprise Matlab does not have a built in routine for this.

Does anyone know how to do this using matlab?
