Join Patrick Royal for an in-depth discussion in this video Using built-in functions and variables, part of Learning MATLAB (2013).
In this video, let's take a look at functions in MATLAB. …Basically, a function differs from a script in that it has a fixed input and …output channels. This makes functions extremely useful for …when you're writing complicated programs that might repeat the same calculations …over and over again. Rather than rewriting your code, you can …simply pull out that part of it into a separate function. …MATLAB ships with a wide variety of functions already implemented. …So we'll start by going over how to use those. …Perhaps the most commonly used functions are matrix generation functions which are …used to create a matrix with certain starter data.…
As an example, let's type in a equals ones 2,3 in the command Window. …This tells MATLAB to generate a new matrix with two rows and three columns …and then set all of the values in that matrix to ones. …The zeros function does the same thing with zeros, the rand function does the …same thing with random numbers and so on. The important thing to note here is that …
