I do have 24bit and 12bit integer data in a binary file and need to load this into Octave.
I'm aware that I could use a workaround like the following.
[s,c] = fread(fid,3*nr,'uint8');

The disadvantage of such a solution are:
(1) the octave code is not very clean, and
(2) degrades the performance

Therefore, I'm asking if somebody is working on a native support of 24bit data in fread?
