Being able to view the state of an object is vitally important to class development, client use, and code maintenance. Being forced to index and display individual values is too tedious and far too time-consuming. MATLAB provides a decent display mechanism for scalars, arrays, and structures. The paper states that MATLAB does not provide a good built-in display for objects, but it is now known how to tailor.
