Loading MOLA PEDR files in matlab

I have written a little matlab function to read the MOLA laser altimeter data from the Mars Global Surveyor.  More specifically the so called Precision Experiment Data Records (PEDR) records. PEDRs are generated from the raw altimetry profile data with precision orbit corrections applied. They are time-ordered binary tables with attached PDS labels. You can download the MOLA PEDR data here.

Perhaps somebody will find this useful. The function is attached below.
