Welcome to my first post!
Recursive function 'structstruct.m' accepts a single input of any class and outputs ASCII to the command window. Currently no function outputs.
For non-structure input, structstruct displays the class and size of the input and then exits. For structure input, structstruct displays the fields and sub-fields of the input in an ASCII graphical printout in the command window. The order of structure fields is preserved.
Has header and commented 'help' text with INPUT/OUTPUT info. Code is decently commented.
I designed this function so I could easily explore the structure of a struct variable without 'digging' through all the fields in the Variable Editor. It serves its purpose very well, but there are surely areas for expanded/improved functionality that I'm not seeing...
Comments and suggestions welcome!
Precisely what I needed. Neat implementation.
Thanks, this is great. However, the function as is will only display the size along the first two dimensions of each field. Just substituting the lines
sizestr = [int2str(sizes(1)),'x',int2str(sizes(2))];
sizestr = int2str(sizes(1));
for sc = 2:numel(sizes)
sizestr = [sizestr,'x',int2str(sizes(sc))];
does the trick.
Exactly what I wanted! Thanks! Great!
Nice tool! Thanks.
(P.s. I second Nik on the nested cell idea.)
Great function, elegant implementation. Thanks.
I found it very useful and extened it in the following way:
1. To display the structure of (potentially hierarchical) cells too.
2. To display the value of terminal nodes (character or numeric).
Thanks, Andrew. I will drop you an email with my extension.
Thanks. This is very useful.
Even more useful would be a graphical output in HTML format. How hard would it be to do to do this?
think's for you. great work
This works really well.
I decided I wanted to display the contents of singletons and strings, instead of their size and type, since I'm storing metadata in complex structures. That update was easy to add, a couple of lines checking the size and type. The original will also be useful when I really just want the structure itself.
Thanks for sharing this, Andrew.
