            dataINT offers functions for convienient interactice im-/export of data files, 
 as comma-separated-value- (*.csv, *.dat, *.txt) and binary Excel files (*.xls)
 to or from a Scilab matrix. 
 Parameters, to specify the im-/export, can convieniently entered in a dialog  
 box and the file selection is done by the platform-specific 
 file selection dialog.
 You can specify the following im-/export parameters:
 - Field separator (comma, semicolon, tab, space)
 - Decimal separator (comma, point)
 - Rows and Colums you want to import (DI_readcsv, DI_readxls only)
 - Sheet you want to import (DI_readxls only)
 - Number of lines to skip, e.g. header line(s) (DI_readcsv, DI_readxls only)
 - Comment header line to describe your data (DI_writecsv only)
