Sharing Matlab scripts.

Where can I find and share Matlab scipts?

I work with Matlab, and tend to build up an extensive library of useful scripts and functions, especially when it come to plotting (god, plotting in Matlab can be tedious).

I assume a lot of other people do this too - do you know a good forum where people share and trade Matlab scripts?

I've had good luck with the Matlab Central File Exchange on the Mathworks website.

Absolutely Matlab Central, unless they're scripts for some specific purpose/field. People who tend to process a lot of EEG data, for example, have EEG-centric mailing lists and forums. Same for any field, I imagine.

The problem with sharing scripts and functions across fields is that they have to be INCREDIBLY generalized. I have my lab's own plot_general function, which shortcuts a ton of work for me and spits out a plot (and saves an .eps) in the format that my PI likes to see. I realize, though, that it wouldn't be useful for anyone else, really, given that it's looking for a very specific data format, and needs a pretty intricate parameters structure to modify any details of the plot.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of plotting functions are we talking here?

Response by poster: Thanks, I will look around there a bit more then.

Yeah, generalization seems to be the main problm. And what I am looking for (or attempting to make) are extremely generalized routines for large datasets. I am doing some multi-input multi-output system simulations, and there is a whole whack of input and output data, all in different units, and I want to be able to quickly display them (different models have different in/outs, and I don't want to create something tailored to each model, which then has to be updated as the model changes).

Response by poster: jisubplot for the win!
