List MATLAB files in folder



what lists the path for the current folder and all the MATLAB® relevant files and folders found in the current folder. This list includes all files with MathWorks® file extensions except MATLAB live scripts (.mlx). The list also includes all class and package folders. For more information, see MathWorks File Extensions.


what folderName lists path, file, and folder information for folderName. You do not need to specify the @ or + symbol for class and package folders. For example, what table lists the MATLAB files and folders in toolbox/matlab/datatypes/@table.


s = what(folderName) returns the results in a structure array.
