You may have noticed some recent changes in the format of this blog. Here’s what to expect on a regular basis – two topics
On Tuesdays Doug will provide MATLAB tutorials.
On Fridays guest bloggers Jiro, Brett and Bob will highlight File Exchange submissions.
Bob's pick this week is HTML calendar generator by Tobin Driscoll.
The screen shot above doesn't do an HTML calendar justice. Among other things it autoscales to fit the width of your browser window. You may also notice that
Saturday and Sunday are not displayed. That's a clue to how Tobin uses this tool. From his description "When I teach matlab-intensive
courses, I post a calendar on the class web page and create a link for each date to a matlab diary (or published output) of
that day." His students get weekends off, and Tobin gets extra credit for providing links to MATLAB content.
MATLAB may have started as a humble tool for learning matrix arithmetic and solving linear algebra problems. For nearly a
quarter century MATLAB has grown more powerful and broadly useful. As a dyed-in-the-wool MATLAB geek I just love to see creative and innovative uses like this. Tell us about yours.
