7.1 MATLAB and Programming
MATLAB can be used as a high-level programming language including data structures, functions, instructions for flow control, management of inputs/outputs and even object-oriented programming. MATLAB programs are usually written into files called M-files. An M-file is nothing more than a MATLAB code (script) that executes a series of commands or functions that accept arguments and produces an output. The M-files are created using the text editor.

The Editor/Debugger is activated by clicking on the create a new M-file button in the MATLAB desktop or by selecting ...
