it is desired to have more consistent and clean input cfg parsing. This can be combined with the keyval function. imagine opt = ft_setopt(opt, key, value) opt = ft_checkopt(opt, key, allowedtype, allowedval) val = ft_getopt(opt, key, default) where opt is either a cfg struct or a keyval cell array. In checkopt the allowedtype would be char, cell, double, struct, doublevector, doublematrix, charcell, ... where "isa" would be used for the default types and where custom types could be added on top of that. Multiple options are possible in a cell-array. Translation for simple types should be possible, e.g. the type 'boolean' should translate yes/no to true/false (replaces istrue). the allowedval would be a cell-array and the check would be a simple ismember call.

we should consider also making a mex implementation of ft_getopt to speed it up

(In reply to comment #1) > we should consider also making a mex implementation of ft_getopt to speed it up See and the preliminary mex file that Stefan already made

the implementation is complete in revision 2922, which means that keyval and companions can be replaced.
