The prettyPlot function is a simple wrapper to Matlab's plot function for quickly making nicer-looking plots. Here are the features: Made the default line styles bigger, and the default fonts nicer. Options are passed as a structure, instead of through plot's large number of different functions. You can pass in cell arrays to have lines of different lengths. You can pass an matrix of colors, and cell arrays of line-styles and/or markers. It will cycle through the given choices. All markers are placed on top of (all) lines, you do not have to put a marker on every data point, and you can use different spacing between markers for different lines. You can change only the upper or lower x-limit (y-limit), rather than having to specify both. There is some support for making nicer-looking error lines.
