texlabel

Format text with TeX characters

Description

example

txt = texlabel(f) converts the MATLAB® expression f into the TeX equivalent for use in text. texlabel converts Greek variable names (for example, lambda, delta, and so on) into a character vector that is displayed as Greek letters. The txt output is useful as an argument to annotation functions such as title, xlabel, and text.

example

txt = texlabel(f,'literal') interprets Greek variable names literally.

Examples

collapse all

Plot a line. Create text that contains TeX characters and add the text to the line plot.

plot((1:10).^2)
txt = texlabel('lambda12^(3/2)/pi - pi*delta^(2/3)');   
text(3,90,txt)

If you include the 'literal' argument, texlabel interprets Greek variable names literally. Add text with the literal variable names to the line plot.

text(4,60,texlabel('lambda12^(3/2)/pi - pi*delta^(2/3)','literal'))

Input Arguments
