What is the best (ie simplest) way to implement an associative array (in Perl, a hash) in MATLAB?
I have a number of keys (strings) and I just want to be able to access a set of varfiables using the keys.
Tables, structures and containers all seem to fit the bill, but I can't really tell which is easiest / best.

Use a containers.Map object?
