# Generating reports with matlab

 Page 1 / 1
Basic Publishing with MATLAB

MATLAB includes an automatic report generator called publisher. The publisher publishes a script in several formats, including HTML, XML, MS Word and PowerPoint. The published file can contain the following:

• Commentary on the code,
• MATLAB code,
• Results of the executed code, including the Command Window output and figures created by the code.

## The `publish` Function

The most basic syntax is `publish('file','format')` where the m-file is called and executed line by line then saved to a file in specified format. All published files are placed in the html directory although the published output might be a doc file.

## Publishing with editor

The publisher is easily accessible from the Tool Strip:

Write a simple script and publish it in an html file.

Select File>New>Script to create an m-file. Once the editor is opened, type in the following code:

```x = [0:6]; % Create a row vectory = 1.6*x; % Compute y as a function of x [x',y']% Transpose vectors x and y plot(x,y),title('Graph of y=f(x)'),xlabel('x'),ylabel('f(x)'),grid % Plot a graph```

Save the script as publishing.m and select Publish>Publish.

An HTML file is generated as shown in the figure below:

## The double percentage `%%` Sign

The scripts sometimes can be very long and their readability might be reduced. To improve the publishing result, sections are introduced by adding descriptive lines to the script preceded by `%%` . Consider the following example.

Edit the script created in the example above to look like the code below:

```%% This file creates vectors, displays results and plots an x-y graph x = [0:6]; % Create a row vector y = 1.6*x; % Compute y as a function of x%% Tabulated data [x',y']% Transpose vectors x and y %% Graph of y=f(x)plot(x,y),title('Graph of y=f(x)'),xlabel('x'),ylabel('f(x)'),grid % Plot a graph```

Save the script, a new HTML file is generated as shown in the figure below:

## Summary of key points

1. MATLAB can generate reports containing commentary on the code, MATLAB code and the results of the executed code,
2. The publisher generates a script in several formats, including HTML, XML, MS Word and PowerPoint.
3. The Double Percentage `%%` can be used to creates hyper-linked sections.

I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian

What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
