Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am writing a program where I have the user input the name of two previously created vectors, the computer subtracts them and then generates a variable in the workspace. I was wondering if there was a way to let the user pick this name. I have so far (Y and N have been previously defined as 1 and 0):

subtract_data=input('Would you like to subtract any data sets? Y/N');

if subtract_data == 1

higher=input('Enter the name of the spectrum you would like to subtract from');

lower=input('Enter the name of the spectrum you are subtracting');

new_data=higher-lower;

filename=input('Input file name: ', 's');

....?

end

I am not sure where to go from here how to get the variable new_data to be titled what the user inputs as filename.

thanks
