How to use eval() command to save the workspace variables in different working directory?

조회 수: 28(최근 30일)
The following code works fine in my GUI
Workspace variable : i=1; simtype='gopi'; t=[0 1]; e='hi';
eval(['save Batch_' num2str(i) '_Results_' simtype '.mat t;']); % storing of 't' variable in pwd
eval(['save Batch_' num2str(i) '_Results_' simtype '.mat ' e ' -append;']); % storing of some variables in pwd
eval (['Rin=load(''Batch_' num2str(i) '_Results_PE15.mat'');']); % load again the same variables from pwd
The above code used to save my workspace variables in present working directory. But i would like to save those workspace variables in different working directory. I have tried some comments but it doesnot work good, it shows error. Please check those codes below:
Error comes while using following codes:
%% pwds - different working directory - D:\matlabfiles\ACTIVITY\Itr 3\Script
eval(['save(fullfile(' pwds 'Batch_' num2str(i) '_Results_' simtype '.mat,t;']);
I am getting follwing error only when i am trying to save the file in different working directory (used above code).
% Error: Invalid use of operator
Kindly help me to get the correct code format for saving the workspace variables(not all variables - only some variables) in different working directory which also works in loops, if possible write through eval command itself.

"How to use eval() command to save the workspace variables in different working directory?"
Your task can be resolved much easier and much more efficiently using basic function syntax (just like the save documentation states) instead of command syntax that you used:
Your inefficient, indirect approach using eval:
eval(['save Batch_' num2str(i) '_Results_' simtype '.mat t;']);
The simpler and more efficient approach:
save(['Batch_',num2str(i),'_Results_',simtype,'.mat'],'t')
Or even better with sprintf:
fnm = sprintf('Batch_%d_Results_%s.mat',i,simtype);
save(fnm,'t')
Now is a good time to learn the difference.

Do not use eval. It is not needed - it's virtually never needed. Just use the commands themselves without wrapping them inside eval():
% Use a different folder ("D:\matlabfiles\ACTIVITY\Itr 3\Script") than the current working directory.
folder = 'D:\matlabfiles\ACTIVITY\Itr 3\Script' % Specify folder.
baseFileName = sprintf('Batch_%d_Results_%s.mat', i, simtype); % Specify the base file name.
% Construct the full file name.
fullFileName = fullfile(folder, baseFileName);
% Save to a .mat file.
save(fullFileName, 't');

"Can we able to use eval() command to achieve this same working? - as workspace files to be stored in different working directory."
Why do you need eval to do that?
Every MATLAB user can simply write files to any directory by using absolute/relative filenames and the function form of some file exporting command. So far you have not given any reason why that would not work for you.

%% pwds - different working directory - D:\matlabfiles\ACTIVITY\Itr 3\Script
eval(['save(fullfile(' pwds 'Batch_' num2str(i) '_Results_' simtype '.mat t' ')' ')']);
Requires closing parenthesis ... try above
