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.
