I keep getting the message "Error: Function definitions are not permitted in this context" whenever I try to declare a function.
The code I used was:
function T = truth_table(N) L = 2^N; T = zeros(L,N); for i=1:N temp = [zeros(L/2^i,1); ones(L/2^i,1)]; T(:,i) = repmat(temp,2^(i1),1); end
(then this message appears)
??? function T = truth_table(N)

Error: Function definitions are not permitted in this context.
I tried copying a simple code from a tutorial that is quite similar to what I used.
function Answer = tenTimes(x)
Answer = 10 * x;
But still, this message appears:
??? function Answer = tenTimes(x)  Error: Function definitions are not permitted in this context.
No products are associated with this question.
That is how you define the function, not how you call it:
function y = truthtable(x) %save this as truthtable.m y = 3*x;
call it from the command line or another function with:
y = truthtable(42);
Yes. So open the editor,
and define it as a function by having the first noncomment line be:
function [outputs] = name_of_func(inputs)
%meat of the function
Then save it as name_of_func
and call it. Just like I did above.
