The information presented in these pages generally applies to version 5.x of MATLAB though most of the basics have not changed since version 3.5. The discussion does assume you know how to use and read the on-line help facilities in MATLAB (help, helpdesk and helpwin) and are familiar with how MATLAB handles things like vectors and arrays.
Note: I have tried to bring these pages up to date to version 7 since there
has been much development in MATLAB syntax since version 5 (particularly in the
way functions can be treated). If you should find "broken" code or code that
could just be improved, please let me know and I will update the material so
that it works.
