Time stamping plots

Posted by Doug Hull,

For many of our customers the graph that gets produced at the end of a script is their entire output that will be printed and saved. That one plot must have all the relevant information on it. This is where PLTSTMP comes in handy. It is a… read more >>

Enhanced data exploration interface

NoteThe file submission referenced in this post is no longer available on File Exchange. Paul Mennen's plt combines a lot of useful data exploration tools into a single, well-designed, plot explorer. Intended to be used instead of PLOT, PLT displays your 2-D data in an enhanced figure window. You have... read more >>

Animation of convolution

Posted by Doug Hull,

Convolution can be a difficult process to learn and visualize, so Laine decide to make an animation to show the process occuring. This file makes it much easier to understand the process. I chose this entry because it is something I would have liked when I was learning convolution in... read more >>

Displaying a table in a figure

Posted by Michelle Hirsch,

I’m often asked how to include a table of numbers in a figure. While it’s possible to use an array of edit boxes, I’ve always recommended using an ActiveX spreadsheet control as an easier (and more professional looking) solution. Thing is, when I went to actually do it… read more >>

MATLAB on an embedded processor

NoteThe file submission referenced in this post is no longer available on File Exchange. Selection of a three dimensional point from a two dimensional display is a tricky problem. Joe Conti has expanded MATLAB's capabilities to being able to do just that. Actually, if you have been using... read more >>

Talking MATLAB

Posted by Michelle Hirsch,

Fahad Al Mahmood’s Speak takes advantage of Microsoft Office’s spoken word engine to make MATLAB talk. This brings me back to grad school days, using MATLAB 5 on a PowerComputing Mac clone. Speak was a function specifically on MATLAB on the Mac that did the same thing. … read more >>

Surface plots from scatter data

Posted by Doug Hull,

I do a lot of seminars and talk to a lot of people about what they are trying to do in MATLAB. One of the more common questions is how to get a surface plot from their data when the data is not on a regular grid. Zain, here at... read more >>

Instrument Drivers

Posted by Michelle Hirsch,

You all know that Release 14 was just released (which will probably put me out of the File Exchange business since the new features make my most popular files irrelevant). One of the things I’m most excited about is the introduction of Instrument Drivers to the Instrument Control Toolbox…. read more >>
