This study proposes a simple and inexpensive tool for automating matrix recognition in heterogeneous input/output data from various computational applications. The recognition of matrix data is done at the file system level and is based on the development of recognition rules using data structure sample. Our contribution is as follows: we propose an automated mechanism for recognizing matrices written by different styles in input/output files; this procedure does not require special query and any participation from the end-user; no special skills are required for the end-user. The proposed recognition mechanism is an effective solution for the development of an automated system for plugging in and switching math modules integrated into a system of sequential computations without resorting to third-party developers.
