Conditional statements How do we control the flow of a program based on the state of the variables? if, else, elseif statement if condition1 <do-something-here> elseif condition2 <do-something-here> else <do-something-here> end (any number of elseif’s can be used, either 1 or 0 else’s can be used) Matlab expects elseif but Perl uses elsif. Matlab does not accept { } to wall statements in. Entire chain of if-elseif- else must end with “end”. Perl requires { } around each group of statements.

Conditions How do we express conditions? For 1x1 number variables (ie, scalars): a==b, a > b, a < b, a >= b, a <= b, a ~= b What is a condition? A condition is an expression that is valued at either true or false. (Basically, it’s a “yes” or “no” question.) You can assign this value to another variable: Matlab uses ~= for “not equal”. Perl uses != or ne.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
