I created a Snippets dir, and changed your code so I could pass the name of the snippet file name to the function from the command window and it will paste the snippet in the right place. thanx



Fix bug for new versions of Matlab.

Now the code does not add a variable in the workspace. Besides, a new line is introduces by the more usual character '\n'.

Fix minors bugs and give an example.
