[Eeglablist] Using EEGLAB from within a function

Dear David,

This answer is based on my guess.

When you use EEGLAB from command line you don't need to have main GUI on
screen. You can check your workspace for the current status. For example,
your EEG data is stored in EEG.data. After loading a dataset type 'EEG' in
the command line and you can see what you have in your current workspace.

This also means that unless you update it, GUI could show old status of
your data and misleads you. To update it use 'eeglab redraw' as your code
