This function emulates the R version of dput(). It writes ASCII representations of variables that can be easily pasted back into MATLAB and evaluated to recreate the variables. This is especially useful for quickly posting short reproducible examples on sites like Stack Overflow, without having to upload any separate data files as attachments, and while overcoming the shortcomings of the "save -ascii" approach.
One particularly useful highlight is that dput can flexibly handle generic recursion into structure and cell arrays. It will work through these objects, repeatedly calling itself, to eventually capture their entire organization down to their basic elements.
