I'm understanding a MATLAB code starting with following lines.
dlgtitle = 'parameter ';
no = 1;
prompt = {'a', 'b'};
value = {'1', '2'};
answer = inputdlg(prompt, dlgtitle, no, value, 'on');
answer_str = char(answer);
c = str2num(answer_str(1,:));
d = str2num(answer_str(2,:));
However, I'm not familliar with "inputdlg".
Is there someone who can explain the meaning of the program line by line, and the purpose of "inputdlg"?
