  5:     This uses the low level PetscBinaryWrite() and PetscBinaryRead() to access a binary file. It will not work in parallel!

  7:     We HIGHLY recommend using instead VecView() and VecLoad() to read and write Vectors in binary format (which also work in parallel). Then you can use
  8:     share/petsc/matlab/PetscBinaryRead() and share/petsc/matlab/PetscBinaryWrite() to read (or write) the vector into MATLAB.

 10:     Note this also works for matrices with MatView() and MatLoad().
