Functions for reading info databases of Zeiss LSM confocal microscope files.

structmap(tagcode, map, numprefix)
function tag = structmap(tagcode, map, numprefix)
% STRUCTMAP use struct as a map between field names and values
%   TAG = STRUCTMAP(TAGCODE, MAP, [NUMPREFIX])
%
%   Unfortunately, MatLab structs cannot have numerical field names, so we must
%   use a hack NUMPREFIX.  A better solution would be to use cell arrays and OO
%   programming.
