[Numpy-discussion] [OT: MATLAB] Any way to globally make Matlab struct attributes Python-property-like

I.e., I'd, at minimum, like to globally replace

get(Handel, 'Property')




set(Handel, 'Property', value)


object.Property = value

to an arbitrary level of composition.

(It's really getting cumbersome having to compound gets and sets all
over the place while debugging.)

(Sorry for the OT post; I thought I'd get a more sympathetic response
here than on the MATLAB lists.) ;)


In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really
good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change
their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do
it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human
and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall
the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.
