I don't know MATLAB, but all those vector lengths treat vectors as
objects, meaning that the length of the vector is incorporated into the
object.  By contrast, C or C++ is just a "high-level assembly language,"
with arrays simply being regions of memory.  What is likely happening is
that C is taking your MATLAB file and simply laying out the vectors
contiguously in memory, which since there is no demarcation between
arrays probably results in a shorter vector being "filled" by the next

You can write your own converter to deal with this, though I suspect
that MATLAB has some kind of "export" code available somewhere.
