I need to access variables in a workspace which are in a workspace down the stack. And I need to do this in a function - Thus, start the debugger, select the workspace manually and change the variable is not the thing I want to do. Thus, I need to do something like
evalin( 'caller', evalin( 'caller', evalin( ..., variablename) ) ... ).
I am open for hacky solutions too.
Furthermore: Please do not tell me any of the following: "Do not use eval", "Do not use global variables", "Don't do this" etc.. I am not a novice programmer (and hate that in similar questions the answer is never given, but only told that one should not do it).

I am not fully satisfied with the Matlab testing framework, since I think its quite verbose and does lack some important features, expecially for testing scientific software. Thus, I am mostly writing extra assertions on top of the matlab framework. (Edit: assertition framework would thus be the better name)
The thing I want to do is tracing.
