Join Patrick Royal for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding program documentation, part of Learning MATLAB.
In previous videos we've looked at the tools Matlab provides to write and debug …good programs. But writing good code is only half the battle. …In the modern world, the vast majority of programming projects are much to large …for an individual to complete. So documenting your code in a readable …fashion is of paramount importance. Let's look at the syntax for adding …comments and help files in Matlab. In this video we'll use the …practice_script.m file that you created in the creating scripts video, earlier in …this chapter. To designate a line, or the latter part …of a line as a comment. Simply put a percent sign directly before …the comment. In this example, you might want to …clarify the first line of code, to let the reader know that it is converting the …CSV file into a MatLab matrix. So you can simply write percent.…
Converts CSV to matrix. Another common use of commenting is for …debugging purposes. Commenting out a suspect line is an easy …way to see if it was the command causing whatever error the program is throwing. …
