data = single(fread(fid,[Var.no+1 nl],'single',0));
is quite speedy while 
data = fread(fid,[Var.no nl],'single',4);
is very very very slow.

Reducing Var.no and increasing the number of skips increases the speed 

data = fread(fid,[2 nl],'single',4*(Var.no-1));
takes 23.6 sec while
data = fread(fid,[1 nl],'single',4*(Var.no)); 
takes 11.6 sec while
data = single(fread(fid,[Var.no+1 nl],'single',0));
takes 0.2 sec.


The code works fine in Matlab.
The code is intended for reading a double column in a mixed dataset . The
first row is 'double' and the rest is single.
