The TOAST-Matlab help system

After installation of the Toast toolbox and setting up the required search paths with the mtoast_install script, a list of available toast functions can be obtained by typing
help toast
at the Matlab prompt. To get the Toast toolbox help page, type
doc toast
or open "Matlab Help" from the Matlab menu, and select the "TOAST Toolbox" entry. The help page contains links to function listings, demos, and introductory pages, as well as the Toast web home page. A collection of Toast demos is available by typing
demo toolbox toast
at the command prompt, by selecting "Demos" from the Matlab "Start" button, or from the "Demos" tab in the help browser. The demos are showing some of the Toast toolbox capabilities in small example problems.

  • Run matlab, and type
    This will open the GUI interface for entering reconstruction parameters to the TOAST reconstruction code.
  • Click "Load", and open the file toast2008/test/2D/matlab/recon1.prm. This will load the parameters for a reconstruction on a circular test problem.
  • Click "Run". This starts a reconstruction. After a few seconds, the results of the first iteration will be displayed.
