How does "disp" formatting work exactly?
5 views (last 30 days)
I am converting some PDFs using Matlab and the way I want the final text to look is exactly how "disp" displays it. However, I am scratching my head of how to capture that in a way that I can write it to a word document or capure that exact process that "disp" does using fprintf. Any ideas?

None of the disp() formats correspond to single fprintf() formats. They all examine the range and data type of what they are displaying and choose output format dynamically. The output it uses for a vector of values might be different than what it uses for the values individually.
You can evalc() to capture the results of disp(), or you might be able to use diary() for your purposes.
