Request for Comments/Advice on Useful Editors for MATLAB Development
Despite the age of the MATLAB product, now 15 years old since 1984, the built-in editor and development environment remains rather primitive compared to other IDEs.
For example, there's a fundamental contradiction between the practice of promoting the use and coding of multiple small files in MATLAB with each file corresponding to a function, and then the glaring absence in the built-in editor of a multi-file global search and replace utility. So the developer has to do a search and replace manually in each separate file where he wants to change a common word or variable name used throughout the code for clarity of reading.
What editors have you found useful? Have you been able to successfully integrate them with the MATLAB debugger? Do they provide version control and automatic date-time stamping?
