Scripts are the simplest type of program file. They are useful for automating a 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.
Create a script in a new file or from commands in the Command History.
Add comments to describe your code and allow others to understand it.
Define code sections within your MATLAB program files to evaluate each section individually.
Program files can be scripts that simply execute a series of MATLAB statements, or they can be functions that also accept input arguments and produce output.
Add functions to scripts to reuse code within a script and avoid creating and managing separate function files.
MATLAB provides options for presenting your code to others.
Add markup to your code to create a formatted document that includes your code, comments, and output.
Prepare MATLAB comments for publishing, including using HTML and LaTeX markup, and displaying external files and graphics.
Publish a MATLAB file including specifying input argument values and properties for publishing by using publish configurations.
