Continue Long Statements on Multiple Lines

This example shows how to continue a statement to the next line using ellipsis (...).

s = 1 - 1/2 + 1/3 - 1/4 + 1/5 ...
      - 1/6 + 1/7 - 1/8 + 1/9;

Build a long character vector by concatenating shorter vectors together:

mytext = ['Accelerating the pace of ' ...
    'engineering and science'];

The start and end quotation marks for a character vector must appear on the same line. For example, this code returns an error, because each line contains only one quotation mark:

mytext = 'Accelerating the pace of ... 
            engineering and science'

An ellipsis outside a quoted text is equivalent to a space. For example,

x = [1.23...
4.56];

is the same as

x = [1.23 4.56];
