Editor's Note: This file was selected as MATLAB Central Pick of the Week

This toolbrox makes the MATLAB documentation more accessilble to the bro community by putting the help text into a language that bros can more easily understand. It does so by identifying patterns of words that can be replaced by more "bro-friendly" terms. For example, it replaces "property" with "broperty" and "variable" with "variabrole."
To use this brocumentation, install the toolbrox and then use the "bro" command just as you would use the "help" or "helpwin" command. For example, try typing
>> bro plot

The list of bro terms was compiled manually, so there are likely many bro-able words that have not yet been bro'd by this toolbrox. If you find any of them, feel free to add them to the list by editing the file stringsToBroOut.m. You can do this by typing the following:

>> edit stringsToBroOut
