File Information

GETUNDOC('OBJECT') or GETUNDOC(H) returns a structure of undocumented properties (names & values) for the object having handle H or identified by the string 'OBJECT'.
GETUNDOC(H,true) returns the undocumented properties of H, while skipping the following standard undocumented properties: ALimInclude, ApplicationData, Behavior, CLimInclude, HelpTopicKey, IncludeRenderer, PixelBounds, Serializable, XLimInclude, YLimInclude, ZLimInclude
For example, GETUNDOC('axes') or GETUNDOC(gca) returns undocumented property names and values for the axes object.

This is an extension of Duane Hanselman's original utility from 2006 (which is no longer available on the File Exchange).

Robert - you are correct: there is no need for the aerospace blockset - it got in there by some mistake
