Enhanced disp that can take any number of arguments

| Watch this File

File Information

Wish disp took more than one argument? Tired of using fprintf to print to the console? Try:

Dispa('the brightness is', var, 'cd/m2');

I guess it depends on how much you like printf strings. I find them easy to write, but error prone to edit after the fact.

Don't see why I should be tired of:
>> fprintf('the brightness is %.3f cd/m2 \n',32.098)
the brightness is 32.098 cd/m2

now supports \t and \n style formatting, like printf (in fact, it uses fprintf to output text).
