Assign a value to a workspace variable
assigns the value
val to the variable
var in the workspace
var is created if it doesn't exist.
ws can have a value of
'caller' to denote the MATLAB base workspace or the workspace of the caller function.
assignin function is particularly useful for these tasks:
The MATLAB base workspace is the workspace that is seen from the MATLAB command line (when not in the debugger). The caller workspace is the workspace of the function that called the M-file. Note the base and caller workspaces are equivalent in the context of an M-file that is invoked from the MATLAB command line.
This example creates a dialog box for the image display function, prompting a user for an image name and a colormap name. The
assignin function is used to export the user-entered values to the MATLAB workspace variables
