Is there any property setting for 'area' function which generates the 'straits' for the boundary of the colored regions instead of 'plot' curves?

Accepted answer

% Random row input

x = 1:10;
y = rand(1,10);

% Normal area chart

subplot(3,1,1)
area(x,y)

% Stairs chart (non area)

subplot(3,1,2)
stairs(x,y)

% Stairs area

subplot(3,1,3)
x = [x;x];
y = [y;y];
area(x([2:end end]),y(1:end))
