Scripts are the simplest kind of program file because they have no input or output arguments. They are useful for automating series of MATLAB® commands, such as computations that you have to perform repeatedly from the command line or series of commands you have to reference.
You can open a new script in the following ways:
Highlight commands from the Command History, right-click, and select Create Script.
Click the New Script button on the Home tab.
This code opens the file

For example, suppose you save this code that generates random
numbers between 0 and 100 as a script called
columns = 10000; rows = 1; bins = columns/100; rng(now); list = 100*rand(rows,columns); histogram(list,bins)
You can run the code in
either of these methods:
Type the script name
the command line and press Enter
Click the Run button on the Editor tab
When execution completes, the variables (
remain in the MATLAB workspace. To see a listing of variables,

the base workspace with your interactive MATLAB session and with
