Hatch fill patterns plus plus

by

 

19 Feb 2008 (Updated )

Updated code to replace colors in figures with hatching

makehatch_plus(hatch,n,m)
function A = makehatch_plus(hatch,n,m)
%MAKEHATCH_PLUS Predefined hatch patterns
%
% Modification of MAKEHATCH to allow for selection of matrix size. Useful whe using 
%   APPLYHATCH_PLUS with higher resolution output.
%
% input (optional) N    size of hatch matrix (default = 6)
% input (optional) M    width of lines and dots in hatching (default = 1)
%
%  MAKEHATCH_PLUS(HATCH,N,M) returns a matrix with the hatch pattern for HATCH
%   according to the following table:
%      HATCH        pattern
%     -------      ---------
%        /          right-slanted lines
%        \          left-slanted lines
%        |          vertical lines
%        -          horizontal lines
%        +          crossing vertical and horizontal lines
%        x          criss-crossing lines
%        .          square dots
%        c          circular dots
%        w          Just a blank white pattern
%        k          Just a totally black pattern
