STRUCT2STR - Converts a struct into a char string and optionally display its pairs of field names and field values in a list box.
The rows of the list box visualizing the fields can be individually selected, and the corresponding fields can be copied to the clipboard.
In this way, this function can be used to paste significant fields of a struct to a plain text file, for documentation purposes.
By displaying the obtained char string we get a similar output as the one generated by the Matlab built-in function DISP, when called on
the original struct.
