\title{Read and write external matrix formats}
\description{
    Read matrices stored in the Harwell-Boeing or MatrixMarket formats
    or write sparseMatrix objects to one of these formats.
}
\usage{
readHB(file)
readMM(file)
writeMM(obj, file, ...)
}
\arguments{
 \item{obj}{a real sparse matrix}
 \item{file}{for \code{writeMM} - the name of the file to be written.
   For \code{readHB} and \code{readMM} the name of the file to read, as
   a character scalar.  The names of files storing matrices in the
   Harwell-Boeing format usually end in \code{".rua"} or \code{".rsa"}.
   Those storing matrices in the MatrixMarket format usually end in
   {".mtx"}.

   Alternatively, \code{readHB} and \code{readMM} accept connection objects.}
 \item{\dots}{optional additional arguments. Currently none are used in
   any methods.}
}
\value{
  The \code{readHB} and \code{readMM} functions return an object that
  inherits from the \code{"Matrix"} class.  Methods for the
  \code{writeMM} generic functions usually return
  \code{NULL} and, as a side effect, the matrix \code{obj} is written to
  \code{file} in the MatrixMarket format (writeMM).
}
\note{
  The Harwell-Boeing format is older and less flexible than the
  MatrixMarket format.  The function \code{writeHB} was deprecated and
  has now been removed. Please use \code{writeMM} instead.
