This tool is useful when one wants to create a GUI from a standalone M-file, but would like to use guide for it's excellent ability to position the GUI objects within the GUI. guidegetter works by first fetching the layout of the uicontrols, uimenus and other objects from a guide generated .fig file. Then an M-file is created that will generate the same GUI without the use of a fig file. The new M-file can then be used to complete the GUI project (write callbacks, etc).

Tested on 6.5 2006a and 2007a.
