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

setpos.m
function setpos(h,fmt,href)
% SETPOS Set graphics object position in a flexible way.
%   SETPOS(H,FMT) sets 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 4 strings separated by colon or space.
%   The format of each string is one of "%1c%f%2c" or "%1c%d%2c" where the 
%   first optional argument is "+" or "-", the second one is a number and 
%   the last one is two characters that specify the unit as :
%
%           px          for Pixels
%           nz          for Normalized
%           in          for Inches
%           cm          for Centimeters
%           pt          for Points
%           ch          for Characters
%           [] (empty)  for Current units [See get(H,'units')]
%
%   For better rendering, SETPOS can be included into the "Createfcn" or 
%   "Resizefcn" properties of the graphical object H.
%
%   Any string value of FMT can be replaced by a single '#' to keep the current 
%   value of the corresponding parameter.
%
%   The first optional argument of FMT is used to increase ('+') or 
%   decrease ('-') the corresponding value.
%
%   Note that SETPOS(H,FMT) works as set(H,'Position',FMT) when FMT is 
%   a 4 double values vector.
%
%   SETPOS(H,FMT,HREF) sets 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). Note that this should only affect 
%   Left&Bottom (1st&2nd) element of the "Position" vector of H.
%
%   See also GETPOS, 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
