GCLABEL allows the automatic placement of contour labels in the intersection points between a guide and the contour lines.

The guide is created by the user and can be a curve (spline) or a broken line. Any number of guides can be added and they also can be saved (as a text file) for future use in other figures

[C,H] = CONTOUR(...)

1- Click with the left mouse buttom at least twice on the axes to create the guide and auxiliary points (aux). To stop click with other buttom.

2- Use the left mouse buttom to drag guide or aux as desired

3- Click on the guide with right buttom and select <done> on the uicontextmenu. This will delete the guide and aux

Many options are available, see the help of the file and see the screenshots for some features

It works in Matlab releases from 5.3 (at least) to the current one (R14)
