 Subject: Way to convert code into a mathematically readable format ... From: SSOI SS Date: 23 Aug, 2012 09:18:05 Message: 1 of 5 Hi, a simple question but perhaps no easy answers: Does anyone know whether there is an algorithm or way to convert code (e.g. java, c etc) into a mathematically readable text format. One example is: Input: A = ( ( ( ( ( (X ) * Y ) / Z) * Q) * P) / R ); Output:         X * Y * Q * P A = -----------------------              Z * R Thanks for any advice.

Take a look at the PUBLISH function or, if your expression uses symbolic variables created using SYM or SYMS from Symbolic Math Toolbox take a look at the PRETTY function. In general?

From: SSOI SS Date: 23 Aug, 2012 14:16:06 Message: 4 of 5 Hi Steven, Actually I was searching something more simple who can generate the equations in text format. Maybe the example was too easy, because in C codes there are lots of things which don't correspond to Matlab coding rules. I don't know whether the methods you told can handle them well. Anyway, thanks "Steven_Lord" wrote in message ... > > > "SSOI SS" wrote in message > news:k14sgd$fcn$1@newscl01ah.mathworks.com... > > Hi, a simple question but perhaps no easy answers: > > Does anyone know whether there is an algorithm or way to convert code > > (e.g. java, c etc) into a mathematically readable text format.

It works for my simple example, but if i put complicated c codes into the box, then it doesn't work. Maybe the strings from codes are too long for the processor "Justin Ashmall" wrote in message ... > "SSOI SS" wrote in message ... > > Does anyone know whether there is an algorithm or way to convert code (e.g. java, c etc) into a mathematically readable text format.
