Editor's Note: This file was a File Exchange Pick of the Week

Function VANITY retrieves a FEX contributor's number-of-downloads and rank statistics, adds them to a history file, and plays Handel's Hallelujah chorus if the rank has improved since the latest check.

Haha, great stuff. This can also have other applications, e.g., keeping track of rankings from other websites!

Please ignore my previous post if your script already creats a permanent (and not one-time) history log.

Can you update this function to simply have an option to just record the total hits for each of the author's files, along with the current date and time, into the mat file? This will be like creating a log. After scheduling this to run everyday for a month, I'd like to then create plots for each of my files from there.

Next version could perhaps include a funeral march if rank goes down sharply :-)
