Accepted answer

Which MATLAB version are you running?

I suspect you are using a MATLAB version old enough to not know about using ~ as a placeholder.

Replace lines that look like

function NAME(~,~,variable1,variable2)

with

function NAME(TMP___1, TMP___2, variable1, variable2)

where TMP___1 and TMP___2 are arbitrary variable names that are not used inside the function.

That's true my matlab version is old,thanks alot;but I can't still run it:another error: ??? Undefined function or method 'rng' for input arguments of type 'char'.

Error in ==> PathOptimizationDemo>pushbutton_NewField_Callback at 97 rng('shuffle');

Error in ==> PathOptimizationDemo>PathOptimizationDemo_OpeningFcn at 72 pushbutton_NewField_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)

Error in ==> gui_mainfcn at 221 feval(gui_State.gui_OpeningFcn, gui_hFigure, [], guidata(gui_hFigure), varargin{:});

Error in ==> PathOptimizationDemo at 48 gui_mainfcn(gui_State, varargin{:});

what should I do about it?

Unless your version of MATLAB is older still, in which case you might need to use state()
