formatnv

Purpose

Sets the numeric data format used by printfmt().

Format

oldfmt = formatnv(newfmt)
Parameters:newfmt (1x3 vector) – the new format specification.
Returns:oldfmt (1x3 vector) – the old format specification.

Examples

This example saves the old format, sets the format desired for printing x, prints x, then restores the old format. This code:

x = { A 1, B 2, C 3 };

/*
** Set print format and save
** old format
*/
oldfmt = formatnv("*.*lf" ~ 8 ~ 4);

call printfmt(x, 0~1);

/*
** Set print format for printing
** back to old format
*/
call formatnv(oldfmt);
A   1.0000
B   2.0000
C   3.0000

Remarks

See printfm() for details on the format vector.
