MATLAB to PSTricks
So, I’ve been trying to include more good looking figures into . I came across an script to convert from MATLAB to pstricks. However, it looks like it is not maintained anymore.
However, I made some little changes and fix a bug that I found. So, I want to put it here for anyone who is interested in use it.
The changes from the original:
- The standalone file generation uses the
standalonepackage, so (in theory) can compile faster. Because, for some strange reason, when I include these files into any document it takes forever to compile.
- Now, the script can set any option from the options data structure (see the file to understand what I’m saying) individually, instead of passing the whole thing.
- I fix a bug for data points outside of the axes not appearing.
The script is really good, although it has some limitations. Still, I will try to keep this entry up to date if I made some changes to the file.
So the script is here: fig2texps. To use the script easily call
h = figure; % a handle for the figure plot(...); % your figure here fig2texps(h,'file.tex'); % basic invocation
To check all the options you can set see the
globals struct in line 187.
Hope that helps…
(07.11.11) I found one bug, if the legend is outside of the figure the labels were place improperly. I hope it is fixed now.
(16.11.11) Fix bug when lines are out of the axis box. If two points were above or below the axis a line was drawn. Now, it is not.
