Read contents at URL



s = urlread('url') reads the content at a URL into the string s. If the server returns binary data, s will be unreadable.

s = urlread('url','method','params') reads the content at a URL into the string s, passing information to the server as part of the request where method can be get or post, and params is a cell array of parameter-value pairs.

[s,status] = urlread(...) catches any errors and returns the error code.
