Hi. I have several techniques to find spots on an image and rather than have say 5 different functions I want to create one and pass in a "method" flag. My question is that each different method has a different number of inputs and outputs. Im not sure how to handles these, and help is greatly appreciated.
function[p1,p2,p3,p4,p5]=objectDetections(handles,image,x,y,par1,par2,method)
if method==1
//perform method 1 - requires inputs handles,image,x,y
// returns p1,p2
elseif method==2
//perform method 2 - handles,image,x,y, par1
//returns p1,p3
elseif method==3
//perform method 3 - handles,image,x,y, par1, par2
//returns p1,p2,p3,p4,p5
end

The simplest, clearest, neatest solution: use a structure. This is what MATLAB uses for many advanced functions that support multiple options, (e.g. optimization, ODE's, etc), and is simple to implement.

You have multiple options...one of the option is make output a structure....
function[out]=objectDetections(handles,image,x,y,par1,par2,method)
if method==1
//perform method 1 - requires inputs handles,image,x,y
out.p1 = p1;
out.p2 = p2;
elseif method==2
//perform method 2 - handles,image,x,y, par1
out.p1=p1;
out.p3=p3;
elseif method==3
//perform method 3 - handles,image,x,y, par1, par2
out.p1=p1;
out.p2=p2;
out.p3=p3;
out.p4=p4;
out.p5=p5;
end
You can also make output a cell.

You could pass a structure to your function. The structure could contain whatever flags and arguments you need. Same goes for the output.
Slightly more cumbersome: a function can accept a variable number of arguments -> varargin
