how to list functions/toolboxes required by a program

35 views (last 30 days)
Hi there. I am part of a relatively small scientific community and many of us develop custom code for data analysis. We share with each other, but one of the problems I've often come across is code not working because either I don't have the appropriate toolbox, or I received the main program but not one of the custom-written functions required.
It's not a huge deal, but it's annoying and wastes time troubleshooting and exchanging emails back and forth. Is there a script or function that can search through a Matlab m-file and return a list of all the function calls and/or toolboxes? It would also be nice to distinguish between (purchased) toolbox functions and custom-written functions.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Do you remember what you searched for/how you searched? That could be useful feedback for the MATLAB Central team.
