This tool plots the Rosin-Rammler Diagram (RRSB) and calculates various related parameters.

getpos.m
function [pos,unit]=getpos(h,fmt,href,opt)
% GETPOS Get graphics object position in a flexible way.
%   GETPOS(H,FMT) gets the position property of graphics object 
%   with handle H, according to FMT that can be expressed using different
%   units. H must have a "Position" property.
%
%   FMT is a char array containing four "%2c" strings separated by colon or
%   space. The two characters specify the unit as :
%
%           px  for Pixels
%           nz  for Normalized
%           in  for Inches
%           cm  for Centimeters
%           pt  for Points
%           ch  for Characters
%
%   If FMT is only one format string from the above list, all returned values are
%   expressed using this unit.
%
%   Any string value of FMT can be replaced by a single '#' to not retrieve the
%   corresponding value. The returned value is NaN except if the optional last 
%   argument OPT is set to "compact" in GETPOS(H,FMT,[HREF],OPT).
%
%   Note that GETPOS(H) works as get(H,'Position') and return the position 
%   vector in the current unit of the graphics object H.
%
%   GETPOS(H,FMT,HREF,['compact']) gets the position of the graphics object H according 
%   to FMT, but using the position of the graphics object HREF as reference instead 
%   of the parent of H. HREF must be a valid handle and must have a "Position" 
%   property (except for the Root object). Returned values may be negative or 0.
%
%   [POS,UNIT]=GETPOS(H,...) returns an additional output argument UNIT that 
%   contained the unit list of the output vector position POS. It may be safer 
%   when different units are used.
% 
%   See also SETPOS, SET, GET.

%   Revision: 1.0 (12-Feb-2007)
%             1.1 (14-Feb-2007) Third input argument HREF added.
%                               Minor corrections in the help section.
%             1.2 (21-Feb-2007) Bug fixed if HREF is the Root object
%                               Examples removed from the help section
