[FWTools] gdal_translate

  I am developing a geospatial tool in matlab. While running this tool, the
user will have access to a grid file developed by ArcGIS ( *.adf) developed
from another program. However, since I am developing the tool in Matlab
(which can read geotiff), I need to convert the .adf file to .tif file.
   One of the methods I am considering is to use the gdal_translate
function. I downloaded the FWTools (2.4.2) and to start with, I used the
OpenEV program to open the .aux file attached with the *.adf file. However
when I tried to export using (File -> export), I get an error message saying
that it is unable to create this tif file.
   Eventually I would like to fire up the gdal_translate.exe from within
Matlab to convert the grid to tif. I have uploaded the grid file to the
following link.


I would appreciate any suggestions/comments as I troubleshoot this problem.

Thank you.
