use directory title as title of plot

Asked by Samuel on 19 Jul 2013

hello, i have a test program that i run where the results are stored in specific directories. I wanted to see if there is an easy way to code it so that the title of the plot will just show the directory name.

thanks in advance for the help.

Use set() and set the "Name" property. For example:

set(gcf,'name','c:\Demos by ImageAnalyst\Awesome ones','numbertitle','off')


Or for just a plot, not a whole figure, use title

title('c:/some folder', 'FontSize', 15);

Thanks for the reply.

Actually i was hoping for a routine that will automatically get the directory name(i wont have to specify the directory). this is because i was hoping to make one routine that i can copy and paste to the working directory and it will generate th title automatically, instead of me having to modify it for each directory.

pwd gets the current folder
