The submission presents (almost complete) hourly download statistics for all FEX submissions and contributors over the week of November 16-22, 2007.
File fex.txt has 'tall' layout, and can be fetched into Matlab workspace with

[t,id,rank,file,fcat,down] = textread('fex.txt','%20s\t%d\t%d\t%d\t%d\t%d','delimiter','\n');
time = datenum(t,'dd-mmm-yyyy HH:MM:SS');

where id and rank are FEX contributor's id (contained in the URL of one's author page) and rank, file and fcat are the ids of a contributed file and its category, and, finally, down is the cumulative number of the file's downloads.

Codes and names of FEX categories are listed in file cat.txt, readable with

[fcat,drilldown,catname] = textread('cat.txt','%d\t%d\t%s','delimiter','\n');

Variable drilldown equals one for categories that are composites of sub-categories reported on in FEX 'area reports'; drilldown = 0 identifies 'bottom-level' file groups.

A basic MySQL-aided review of the data is carried out in submission 'Analyze FEX download data'.
