File Exchange Pick of the Week

Integrating the File Exchange with the MATLAB Desktop

This week's Pick of the Week takes a turn "out of the box"; rather than select a file, I'd like to highlight new functionality in MATLAB that allows one to interface with the MATLAB Central File Exchange directly from one's MATLAB Desktop.

As of the current release of MATLAB (R2009b), the Desktop includes a new tool called, appropriately, the File Exchange Desktop Tool. To access the tool, simply browse from the MATLAB 'Start' button to 'Desktop Tools,' and then to 'File Exchange':

From there, you'll be presented with a standard MATLAB window that will allow you to find and grab files from the Exchange.

Also, be sure to check out this mini video tutorial demonstrating these new capabilities. And be sure to tell us what you think!
