sound, and plays it. A sinusoidal vector corresponds to a pure tone, and the
frequency of the sinusoidal signal determines the pitch. Thus the following example

We used hold on here not to save a previous graph, but to preserve the axis
properties we had just set. Without hold on, MATLAB
can then adjust the color as desired; for instance, typing rgbpic(end, 1, 2) =
180 will increase the green intensity, making the color lighter and more yellow.
Of course, changing a single pixel will not change the appearance of the gure

The command colormap changes the colormap of the current axes or, with no input
arguments, outputs the current colormap.
