MATLAB Primer, 7th Edition, by Timothy A. Davis and Kermit Sigmon
This is a collection of files used in the 7th Edition of the MATLAB Primer, CRC Press, 2005,

This set of files is not complete in itself, but is meant to accompany the book. Some of the files are not commented at all. Some (such as hello.c) are not really useful except when going through the exercises in the book. Each of the files are fully described in the book.
