Hi,I am doing some kind of data clustering,I use C# to get necessary data from my database,i.e matrix that represents my data.

Rows of that matrix represent words and columns represent documents,matrix is 1-0 matrix which means that ij element of matrix is 1 if i-th word appears in j-th document,and 0 otherwise. Then I use matlab 7.1 to analyze that data,i.e do some clustering.My question is:

after matlab groups my data(which is btw. very very large matrix) I would like to see which document is in which group?how can I do this using C#?I.e how can I accomplish this connection between matlab and C# program?

This is where I'm confused:

It sounds to me like you've already got an established connection between your C# program and matlab. How is matlab getting the data that your C# program pulls from the database?

No,no I didn't connect matlab and C#.Sorry now I see it sounds misleading.I wrote my matrix into the matrix.txt,and I loaded it in matlab and have done some testing with it.So there is no linkage of my program with matlab.

I have never used matlab and actually know very little beyond its name, but I'm going to take a stab in the dark here anyway.

It sounds to me like you want to do one of the two scenarios below:

1.) Using C#, write a matlab plugin that generates this matrix and passes it directly into matlab without using an intermediate "matrix.txt" file.

2.) Generate "matrix.txt" in C#, send that file into matlab, have matlab doing something with that data and export another file (say, "output.txt"), and then use "output.txt" in a C# program.

I think you're leaning closer to the second scenario. Of course, as I know nothing about matlab, it may be that you can't create plugin's for it so the first scenario isn't even possible. I don't know. I'm just hoping to clear up what exactly you're asking so that people who know what they're talking about can help easier.
