matlab2tikzext(path,filename,width,height) exports a figure/plot by using
Nico Schlömer's matlab2tikz (File ID: #22022) to Latex/tikz.

Right before it checks by using Suresh Joel's md5 (File ID: #3432)
if the figure/plot-file has changed. If using tiksexternalize in Latex only
then a new plot will be compiled.

Many thanks to Nico Schlömer and Suresh Joel!


path: (String) e.g. '../latex/'
filename: (String) e.g. 'sine.tikz'
width: (Real) e.g. 6
height: (Real) e.g. 2.57

A simple example:


x = 0:.1:2*pi;
y = sin(x);
axis tight;
matlab2tikzext('../latex/','sine.tikz', 6, 2.57);







- matlab2tikz (File ID: #22022),
- md5 (File ID: #3432).
