# Matlab plotting symbols

Is there a set of commands that I can use in latex to reproduce the plot markers used by MatLab? So far I am using `\$+\$`, `\$\bigcirc\$`, `\$*\$`, `\$\cross\$`, `\$\square\$`, and `\$\diamond\$`. The `\$*\$` symbol is particularly disapointing because the MatLab symbol is an 8 pointed asterisk, but `\$*\$` is six pointed. See here in the Marker section for a list of symbols.
