The mxdrfile wrapper functions were created with the aim of improving the abilities of fast trajectory analysis in Matlab. The library enables reading and writing of .xtc and .trr trajectory files through the use of the original xdrfile library from the Gromacs team.
Both the latest version of the xdrfile library and mxdrfile are open source and released under a BSD license.

> cd my/path/to/mxdrfile
Pay attention to any errors in the make procedure. If needed install required libraries and/or consult the libxdrfile documentation.
> make test
If all went ok, the library can be loaded in Matlab with:
The library read and write functions can be tested by running the included test scripts test_trr.m and test_xtc.m in Matlab after completing the above install procedure.
