Hello Steffen
Yes but it is a user action. "X" in the outputs is the axes handles. From there you can edit the axes using get and set. It could have been done from the command line but I arbitrarily left that out. The complexity vs. adaptability compromise.

Thanks
Michael

30 Apr 2014 Compare Structures Compares two structured variables recursively and notes where the two structures are different. Author: michael arant

Thanks Tommy. Actually, an earlier version did have a division like that. But when you need to compare 0 to 0 (or numerical noise), it breaks down...

Brian: You are correct on the function handle issue. I never planned on that type of structure. Seems that this tool is due for an overhaul.....

14 Mar 2013 Equations of motion to state space Converts set of equations of motion (symbolic format) into state space matrices (x_dot = A*x + B*u) Author: michael arant

M and K are always NxN. C is always NxM. Thus A is NxN and B is NxM

M*x_dot=K*x+C*u
x_dot=M\K*x + M\C*u
x_dot=A*x+B*u

The “A” matrix is the relationship between states and their time derivatives (continuous model) or the current states and the states at the next time step (discreet model). “B” is the input matrix to the system.

A few users with long legend labels have suggested replacing the location in the legend call (line 222) from ‘northeastoutside’ to ‘best’. This does improve appearance in some cases. I’ll leave it to the user to decide which placement to use.

Saved me a lot of time, thanks.

I like it,

I made a small change at line 196 so the waitbars indicate where you are in the process.

if(pse)
waitmsg={['Comparing ' n1 ' and ' n2 '....'];'[spacebar] to step if paused'};
else
waitmsg=['Comparing ' n1 ' and ' n2 '....'];
end
if wbf; wb = waitbar(0,waitmsg); end

Would be great if waitbars appeared staggered on screen. Currently depth in structure does not seem to be passed explicitly. I think you could extract it from the name syntax?

Hello Michael,

Thanks for quick answer.
I already tried to edit with get and set, obviously I made a mistake.
Maybe I have to change "ca" not "x"?
