  WaveForm DataBase (WFDB) Toolbox 

This is a set of MATLAB functions and wrappers for reading, writing, and processing
files in the formats used by PhysioBank databases (among others). 
The WFDB Toolbox has support for reading public PhysioNet databases directly from 
web. This feature allows your code to analyze a wide range of physiological 
signals available from PhysioBank without the need to download entire 
records and to store them locally. This toolbox is distributed under the LGPL
license (see LICENSE.txt file in this directory). For more informationa about the
