corrupted .mat file?

I have a .mat file representing several days of continuous CPU time
which is corrupted -- I think the system crashed while the file was being
written last night.

Examination with 'od' suggests that the header and a lot of the data are
still intact (the file is 100k+) long, but when I try to load it,
it doesn't create any variables. The file was created with simply
'save var var'.

Does anyone (Mathworks folks or others) have any suggestions on
recovering whatever is intact from this file? Simply knowing the structure
of the header would be useful, cause I could write a C program to do it
then...

Copy any responses to me by email, please, as our news server has been
flaky recently.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
