The MATAB print command does not allow me to use PDF. How can I print the scripts in PDF in MATLAB?

I don't know that this is possible directly from MATLAB, but since MATLAB scripts are basically text files, why not open them up in any other text reader or word processing software and print to PDF?
EDIT:
The PUBLISH command can be used to achieve this. Try:
publish('myfile.m','pdf')
Note that you need to suppress any statement output with a semicolon, if you do not want the output of the statement to be published.

Which version are you using? With current versions, you can use print
print -dpdf
