PlotPub is a free and open source MATLAB library for creating beautiful, publication quality graphs from instantly generated MATLAB figures or saved MATLAB fig files. This library provides a simple and easy way to modify almost all aspects of a MATLAB figure. It can export figures in EPS, PDF, JPEG, PNG and TIFF with adjustable resolution. The default settings in PlotPub can produce decent, publication ready graphs right out of the box.

New features of v2.x
----------------------------------------------
- Simple and elegant object oriented approach: all aspects of the MATLAB figure is encapsulated in the Plot class.
- Create new plots, open saved figures or change existing figure using the same call, Plot().
- Control every aspect of a MATLAB figure using the Plot class object.
- Property changes are immediately visible, useful when using from the command window.
- Even easier to use.
- Fully compatible to v1.x.

What’s New in v1.3?
----------------------------------------------
- Several bugs are fixed including marker spacing.

Installation
----------------------------------------------
Download and extract the zip file from the link given above. Install PlotPub using any one of the three possible ways: (1) copy all the *.m files inside the lib folder to either your MATLAB path or (2) copy those files to your current project folder or (3) put plotPub-master in any convenient folder and add the following line in your MATLAB code:

addpath('D:/MATLAB/PlotPub-2.0');

where, I assume that you put PlotPub-2.0 in D:/MATLAB folder. The sample codes can be found inside the examples folder.
