Is there a way to fully display a symbolic answer that is truncated in the command window?

67 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to display a symbolic answer in the command window. However, the entire symbolic expression cannot be displayed. If I scroll to the far right of the command window, I get at the end of my symbolic answer:
... Output truncated. Text exceeds maximum line length of 25,000 characters for Command Window display.
Is there anyway I can view my entire symbolic answer without using the command window?

Hi Ben
The diary command can be used to save the outputs displayed in the command window to a text file. You can find the whole symbolic expression in the text file.
I would do something along the lines of:
>> diary ('myVariable.txt');
>> var1 % your symbolic variable
>> diary off
This will save the output displayed in the command window to the 'myVariable.txt' file.
More details regarding function diary can be found here
