Create a directory, CD to the new dir and imwrite to it

Asked by Ram

I would like to create a new dir, and imwrite to it. here is what I have:

newdir=mkdir('c:\results', date) % this creates a folder c:\results and subfolder with today's date.

cd (newdir) % this returns an error since string is expected.

imwrite to this folder % imwrite to c:\results\date.

thanks for inputs.

In your syntax, newdir is a logical variable that indicates the status of whether the directory creation was successful. It is not the name of the directory.

Looks like you want

cd(['c:\results\',date])

instead.
