PARSEVARARGIN parses a parameter list. Given a set of property names, PARSEVARARGIN assigns the appropriate values to variables. The variables get the name of the property. For instance, if you call a function, foo:

foo(in,'Color','green','Charm',5);

and in foo, you call PARSEVARARGIN:

ParseVarargin({'Color','Charm','Strangeness'});

PARSEVARARGIN will create a variable Color, with the value 'green', a
variable Charm, with the value 5, and a variable Strangness, with the
value NaN.

PARSEVARARGIN will do type checking if you provide types and it will
assign NaN to parameters that are not specified.

Example
clear all;
W = 10;
in = double(rand(10,W)>.5);
XLabel = cellstr(datestr(today-[W:-1:1],'mm/dd/yy'));
Title = 'Exercise Schedule Checkerboard';
Name = 'HeartRateAnalyser';
varargin = {in,'XLabel',XLabel,'Title',Title,'Name',Name};
Prop = {'XLabel','YLabel','Title','Name'};
PClass = {'cell','cell','char','char'};
clear W in Xlabel Title
who
ParseVarargin(varargin,Prop,PClass);
clear varargin Prop PClass
