Toolbox Installer 2.2

Routines for easily installing and uninstalling toolbox directories.
Updated 22 Jul 2003

No License

This kit contains four files for assisting the toolbox author to make a userfriendly alternative to EDITPATH for his/her toolbox. The author uses MAKEINSTALL to create an info-file that will be located in the base/home-directory of a particular toolbox. Then by including the INSTALL and UNINSTALL programs in your toolbox the user simply writes INSTALL to install the directories you specified (you don't have to specify the base directory) to the matlab path, or removing them from the matlabpath by using UNINSTALL.

You can at any instant check the info-file by executing the CHECKINSTALL command.

Example of usage:
The author does something like this:

» cd(fullfile(matlabroot,'toolbox','digitalsim'))
» disp(pwd)
» makeinstall gates latches flipflops registers counters

The user does something like this:

» cd(fullfile(matlabroot,'toolbox','digitalsim'))
» install
