I have to read in a large Binary file whose size is 92,504 KB. When I am using fread command MATLAB is giving me error
Error using fread Out of memory. Type HELP MEMORY for your options.
I tried to restart MATLAB also so that if I am using any virtual memory it should be cleared but still the problem persists.
How can I solve this problem of reading data.

I am sorry for using the word urgent .

fread(fid,'uint8') reads uint8 data and converts it to double. You should leave it as uint8 using fread(fid,'*uint8')
