One of the responsibilities of ft_checkconfig is to add the global defaults from the global ft_default variable to the user's input cfg. All fields present in the ft_default structure that are missing in the user's cfg should be merged.

I created a test script that demonstrates the problem. mbp> svn commit test_bug1450.m Adding test_bug1450.m Transmitting file data . Committed revision 5720.

note to self: there is the fieldtrip/private/mergeconfig function which serves this purpose. It also does not deal with nested structs.

I have improved mergeconfig.m such that it also deals with substructures. The test_bug1450 script now runs properly. mbp> svn commit utilities/ Sending utilities/ft_checkconfig.m Sending utilities/private/mergeconfig.m Transmitting file data .. Committed revision 5729. mbp> svn update U private/mergeconfig.m Updated to revision 5730.
