Unformatted text preview: • These program errors are caused when the programmer errs in determining the correct steps to be taken in the problem solution, such as an attempt to divide by zero. • These errors must be corrected in the source program, which must again be compiled and link-loaded for execution. • The process of program compilation, linking, and execution is shown in Figure 1.3. Figure 1.3: High-level language program development Even when a program executes without an error message, the results must be checked carefully to be sure that they are correct. The computer performs the steps precisely as specified in the source; if the wrong steps are specified, the computer will execute these wrong (but syntactically correct) steps and produce a result that is incorrect. Matlab Mathematical Computation Tool Matlab and other mathematical computation tools are computer programs that combine compu- tation and visualization power that make them particularly useful tools for engineers. Matlab is both a computer programming language and a software environment for using that language...
