[PrString, ErrMsg] = prprintf(Format, Between, VarData)
Pretty Print formated of variable
This function takes the given variable and produces a string
containing the contents of the variable in a pretty printed
The function checks the variable, if it contains characters.
When characters are in the variable/matrix, each row is printed
as one string without looking at 'Format'. 'Between' is used as
Otherwise (VarData contains only numbers), each element is printed
using 'Format'. 'Between' is used to divide the elements of one
row. Between rows a number of spaces is included to visually
divide the rows.
If the variable contains structures or cell arrays, this function
is called recursively for every element, even structure arrays.
An internal function prstruct handles the special case of structures
appropriately. The field names are printed as well, every element on
a single line.
All this produces a good looking string of the elements in 'VarData'
without worrying to much about the format of the elements.
Syntax: [PrString, ErrMsg] = prprintf(Format, Between, VarData)
Format - (optional) String containing formatstring, uses same
syntax as sprintf
if omitted, '%g' is used
Between - (optional) String containing characters to put
between elements in VarData
if omitted, ' ' is used
VarData - Variable(s) to pretty print, may be a scalar,
a character, a string, a matrix, a cell array or
a structure with all of this, even mixed up
If only 2 input parameters are provided, the first input is
Format and the second input VarData, Between is set to an empty
If only 1 input parameters is provided, the first input is
VarData, Format and Between are set to default values.
PrString - String containing the elements in VarData pretty
ErrMsg - String containing possible error message, then PrString
is an empty string
ErrMsg is an empty matrix, when no error occured
>>prprintf('%g', '/', [1.02 4.07 3.0532])
>>prprintf('%.3g ', [1.02 4.07; 3.0532 5.875; 3.324 4.123])
1.02 4.07 3.05 5.88 3.32 4.12
>>prprintf('%s', ' ', ['eins';'zwei';'drei';'vier'])
eins zwei drei vier
Try prprintf with cell arrays and structures as well!
