Hi,

is there something like container in Matlab e.g. Maps or
Lists ?
e.g. I want a map with String <-> int. I can rebuild it
with a cell array of .key/.value structs but adding,
searching, removing becomes where slow and needs utility
functions and has a 'bad' syntax.

Thanks,
Philipp

These things are available in Java and integrate seamlessly
into Matlab. For example:

hash = java.util.Hashtable;
hash.put('myString',magic(3));
hash.get('myString')
ans =
     8 1 6
     3 5 7
     4 9 2
