function statsfun = statsfunhelper(inp1, inp2)
% Helper tool to create a statsfun for the options structure of solvers.
% function statsfun = statsfunhelper(name, fun)
% function statsfun = statsfunhelper(S)
% Usage with (name, fun):
% Input 1: name is a string which is a valid field name (no spaces, starts
% with a letter or an underscore, only alphanumeric characters and
% underscores).
% Input2: fun is a function handle with one output and 1 to 4 inputs, as
% follows (your choice):
% fun(x) or fun(problem, x) or
% fun(problem, x, stats) or fun(problem, x, stats, store)
% where the inputs are the ones that would be given to options.statsfun, as
% described in the help of the solver used. Typically, x is the point on
% the manifold at the current iterate, problem is the Manopt problem
% structure, stats is all the current statistics recorded for that iterate
% and store is the cache structure at the current iterate.
% When calling a Manopt solver with the options structure, such as for
% example with:
% [x, xcost, info] = steepestdescent(problem, [], options);
% you may set a field of the options structure as follows:
% options.statsfun = statsfunhelper('nameofthefield', fun);
% As a result, at each iteration, the stats structure will contain a field
% stats.nameofthefield with the value returned by the call to fun at that
% iterate. The stats structures are stored in the struct-array info.
% As an example, if the value returned by fun is a scalar, then
% [info.nameofthefield] is a vector containing all returned values.
% Usage with S:
% The input S is a structure. For each field of S, say S.field, the stats
% structure will be augmented with stats.field = fun(..), where fun is the
% function handle stored in S.field, and with the same conventions as
% above. This version allows to record more than one bit of information at
% each iteration. Example:
% metrics.nameofthefield = fun;
% metrics.othername = otherfun;
% options.statsfun = statsfunhelper(metrics);
% The different function handles (here, fun and otherfun) can take 1 to 4
% inputs too, and they do not have to take the same number of inputs.
