Lovely function! makes pretty plots. Sadly I haven't yet found an easy way to save plots with these patches in a vectorized form. My two cents regarding NaNs. While I agree there is clearly some ambiguity as to what to do with NaNs. The complete lack of support is not consistent with the basic behavior of existing plotting functions like 'line.' Which one would like to seamlessly substitute for a function like this.
'Line' introduces a discontinuity at NaNs This implementation may be slightly more difficult with patches. But it has the benefit of both being consistent with the meaning of a NaN and very convenient for formatting plots (e.g. when the user desires to easily separate an otherwise contiguous line.)

Get and set the times for creation, access and modification of a file or folder (Windows only)
Author: Jan Simon
Beaware, however that the times return by this function do not necessarily match those return by the MATLAB dir function. This seems to because Windows add an hour when reporting the time during daylight savings time (even if the file wasn't created during daylight savings time. See http://www.mathworks.com/support/solutions/en/data/1-1YLPX9/index.html?product=ML&solution=1-1YLPX9.)
MATLAB however does not do this.
I this function appears to return the Windows time. So I have run into problems when using the two functions together.
