publishBibliography enables to create web page which contains the references inside the input .m files


  • fstring=publishBibliography(InputCell,OUT)example
  • fstring=publishBibliography(InputCell,OUT,Name,Value)example
  • [fstring,citsCell]=publishBibliography(___)example


This routine uses as input the cell which is created with routine makecontentsfileFS and the cell created by publishFSallFiles and uses template file bibliographyEmpty.html which is contained inside:

(main root of FSDA) filesep 'helpfiles' filesep 'FSDA;

to create in a fully automatic way the bibliography file containing all the references.

The output file (if the path is not specified in input option outputDir) will be created inside:

(main root of FSDA) filesep 'helpfiles' filesep 'FSDA;

and will have name bibliography.html


fstring =publishBibliography(InputCell, OUT) publishBibliography with all the default options.


fstring =publishBibliography(InputCell, OUT, Name, Value) Example of use of option outputDir.


[fstring, citsCell] =publishBibliography(___) Example where second output is returned.

  • publishBibliography with all the default options.
  • Create the requested input arguments.

        %Navigate to the main folder of FSDA
        % Specify subfolders of main folders for which contents file has to be
        % created
        InclDir={'graphics' 'regression' 'multivariate' 'clustering' 'combinatorial' ...
            'examples' 'utilities' 'utilities_stat' 'utilities_help'};
        ExclDir={'privateFS'  'datasets'};
        % Create list of folders which must have the personalized contents file
        list = findDir(FSDAroot,'InclDir',InclDir,'ExclDir',ExclDir);
        % Crete personalized contents file for main folder of FSDA
        % and required subfolders.
        [~,OUT]=publishFSallFiles(FilesIncluded, 'evalCode','false');
        % Create HTML file containing all the items which make up the bibliography

  • Example of use of option outputDir.
  • We assume that path outpuPath exist and that inside this path there is template file


  • Example where second output is returned.
  • In this case output Citations contains the list of the citations which have been found.


    Input Arguments

    expand all

    InputCell — Cell created by function makecontentsfileFS.m. Cell.

    Cell containing the names of all files which have to be processed to produce the HTML file contanining the bibliography.

    Data Types: single| double

    OUT — Cell created by function publishFSallFiles.m. Cell.

    Cell of length size(InputCell,1). OUT{i} contains the output of the application of routine publishFS to i-th file, i=1, 2, ..., lengthInputCell.

    Data Types: single| double

    Name-Value Pair Arguments

    Specify optional comma-separated pairs of Name,Value arguments. Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name must appear inside single quotes (' '). You can specify several name and value pair arguments in any order as Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN.

    Example: 'webhelp',true , 'outputDir','C:'

    webhelp —Option which specifies the default path to create html file containing the categorical list of functions.logical.

    If webhelp is true, the output is produced in the path (FSDA root)\helpfiles\FSDAweb.

    If webhelp is false (default), the output is produced in the path (FSDA root)\helpfiles\FSDA.

    Note that this option is valid just if outpuDir option below is omitted.

    Example: 'webhelp',true

    Data Types: logical

    outputDir —Output folder.string.

    Output folder to which the HTML document is saved and where template file function-cateEmpty.html is located, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'outputDir' and the full path. You must specify the full path as a string, for example 'C:\PublishedOutput'. Note that inside outputDir there must be a file named "function-cateEmpty.html" which contains the template to create the categorical list of functions. The defaults of 'outputDir' are as follows:

    if input option webhelp is false outputDir is (FSDA root)\helpfiles\FSDA path, else if input option webhelp is true outputDir is (FSDA root)\helpfiles\FSDAweb path.

    Remark - outputDir must be a valid path.

    Example: 'outputDir','C:'

    Data Types: string

    Output Arguments

    expand all

    fstring —HTML string with all the references. Character

    The HTML file bibliography.html is also produced inside folder specified by input option "outputDir" .

    citsCell —References, associated file and path. Cell

    Cell with three columns.

    First column = citation.

    Second column = FileName of associated file where citation was found.

    Third column = Path of associated file.

    [4] IMPORTANT.

    Extra information which is attached to a citation inside the MATLAB .m file but does not have to appear in the output file bibliography.html must be inserted inside square parenthesis.

    For example in the citation below inside the .m file:
