Description

helpwin lists topics for groups of functions in the MATLAB® Help browser. It shows brief descriptions of the topics and provides links to display help comments for the functions. You cannot follow links in the helpwin list of functions if the MATLAB software is busy (for example, running a program).

helpwin topic displays help information for the topic. If topic is a folder, it displays all functions in the folder. If topic is a function, helpwin displays help for that function. From the page, you can access a list of folders (Default Topics link) as well as the reference page help for the function (Go to online doc link). You cannot follow links in the helpwin list of functions if MATLAB is busy (for example, running a program).
