Similar to WHO/WHOS, but allows user to click-to-clear.

File Information

The zip file contains two functions:


which correspond roughly to Matlab's built in functions:


whom and whoms are meant to be called from the command line to allow the user to see the available variables in the base workspace. The variable names are linked in such a way that clicking on a variable name will delete that variable from the workspace. There is also a link to clear all the variables. See the screen-shot for a illustration of how these functions work.

Tested on 6.5, 2007a

Really nice program, even better with "separately" spelled correctly.

Clear all the variables is a nice addition.

An interesting idea. Good help, no problems that I saw.

I received a request to add a link to clear all variables. I will do so.
