Not sending variable to workspace

Is there a way to not display a variable created in a script in the workspace?

for example: I have these variables, and what I'm doing with them is putting them into a struct.

 a1 = middle_interpolate(327:362,:); 
 b1 = middle_interpolate(363:398,:);
 a2 = middle_interpolate(689:724,:);      
 b2 = middle_interpolate(725:760,:);
 a3 = middle_interpolate(1051:1086,:);    
 b3 = middle_interpolate(1087:1122,:);
 a4 = middle_interpolate(1411:1448,:);   
 b4 = middle_interpolate(1449:1484,:);
 s = struct('sA1',a1,'sB1',b1,'sA2',a2,'sB2',b2,'sA3',a3,'sB3',b3,'sA4',a4,...

I know i could pass the values into the struct manually, but this would take a bit of time, is there a way to just not display the individual variables but still use them?

You would have to do this inside a function, but is there anything to stop you from creating the structure without generating those variables first? i.e.

   s = struct('sA1',middle_interpolate(327:362,:),...

Yeah, that's what i was referring to when i mentioned that i could place the values into the struct manually, which I'll probably just end up doing. Thanks!

Do you mean in the Workspace Browser? If so, then you cannot create a (local) variable that does not show up in the Workspace Browser.
