You probably refer to one post of mine. Indeed I wrote a kind of gdalread mex 
file. I say a "kind" because it doesn't read all the supported gdal formats.
I decided to leave out image formats that are potentially very large. If you 
know Matlab and it's voracity for RAM you'll understand why I did it.

This mex is used in a project of mine called Mirone and is distributed with it.
Mirone (BTW, it also fits on the recent category of gdal viewers) is available 
At this moment (I'm writing from home) I am not sure if the distribution already 
includes the gdalread_m.c (the mex) source code, but it does include the 
gdalread_m.dll mex file (it is on Mirone's root directory).

My email contact is:

Tell me if the source code is not included and you want it.
