Dear sir/madam,
I need to run the matlab code step-by-step, and also see what is happening in the code or the variables. How can I do this? Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Thanking you, BSD

Use the debugger. See Editing and Debugging MATLAB Code in the documentation for more details.

@Arnaud: Thanks for this important answer. Although it might seem so obvious, there are a lot of questions in this forum, which could be avoided, if the user knows how to apply the debugger. +1

Many users also prefer not line by line, but a bit larger chunks. Look for "Cell Mode".

If you read the section of the documentation I mentioned in my answer, you'll see there is a part entitled "Evaluating Subsections of Files Using Code Cells".

There is a recent blog post by Loren about the echo command. Cell mode and the debugger are nice, but I think a lot of us have forgotten (or never knew) the power of echo.
