The MATLAB® code editor provides an effective environment for class development. The Code Analyzer, which is built into the editor, check code for problems and provides information on fixing these problems. For information on editor use and features, see Code Editor.
Define classes in files just like scripts and functions. To
use the editor or debugger with a class file, use the full class name.
For example, suppose the file for a class,
in the following location:
myclass.m in the MATLAB editor,
you could reference the file using dot-separated package names:
You could also use path notation:
myclass.m is not in a class folder, then
To refer to functions inside a package folder, use dot or path separators:
edit PackFld1.PackFld2.packFunction edit +PackFld1/+PackFld2/packFunction
To refer to a function defined in its own file inside of a class folder, use:
