Unformatted text preview: Lecture 2 Matlab Programs In Matlab , programs may be written and saved in files with a suffix .m called M-files . There are two types of M-file programs: functions and scripts . Function Programs Begin by clicking on the new document icon in the top left of the Matlab window (it looks like an empty sheet of paper). In the document window type the following: function y = myfunc(x) y = 2*x.^2 - 3*x + 1; Save this file as: myfunc.m in your working directory. This file can now be used in the command window just like any predefined Matlab function; in the command window enter: > x = -2:.1:2; . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Produces a vector of x values. > y = myfunc(x); . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Produces a vector of y values. > plot(x,y) Note that the fact we used x and y in both the function program and in the command window was just a coincidence. In fact, it is the name of the file myfunc.m that actually mattered, not what anything in it was called. We could just as well have made the function function nonsense = yourfunc(inputvector) nonsense = 2*inputvector.^2 - 3*inputvector + 1;nonsense = 2*inputvector....
