Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Export of Figures

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Export of Figures

Converts 2D & 3D Matlab plots to the scalable vector format (SVG). This format is specified by W3C (http://www.w3.org) and can be viewed and printed with internet browsers.

Added preliminary support of filter, clipping, and tickmark extensions that go beyond the Matlab functionality. SVG filters are a great tool to create stylish plots! Try it out! Before you start using this new features have a look at the tutorial. More information and examples can be found on my blog http://www.zhinst.com/blogs/schwizer/.

Tested browsers and editors for basic SVG support (no filters, no animation):
Opera 9.64,10.50, 10.63 -> yes
Firefox 3.5,3.6 -> yes
Inkscape 0.46, 0.47 -> yes
Chrome 8.0.552.210 beta -> yes
Internet Explorer 9.0 beta -> yes
Internet Explorer 8.0 -> no
Internet Explorer + RENESIS -> yes

Tested browsers and editors for SVG filters:
Opera 9.64,10.50, 10.63 -> yes
Firefox 3.5,3.6 -> yes
Inkscape 0.46, 0.47 -> yes (some limitations)
Chrome 8.0.552.210 beta -> yes
Internet Explorer 8.0, 9.0 beta -> no
Internet Explorer + RENESIS -> no

IMPORTANT: Use 'v6' graphics option for Matlab versions > R14! (see below)

Editors for the SVG file format can be found at http://www.inkscape.org.

> plot2svg % opens a file dialog to plot the active figure
> plot2svg('myfile.svg', figure handle, pixelfiletype)

pixelfiletype = 'png' (default), 'jpg'

IMPORTANT: Firefox 1.5 may hang if too many linear shaded patches are used in the figure.
