The Matlab Current Folder is the working directory for the development environment. The Current Folder can be changed to different directories on your computer.
When writing a program, Matlab will implicitly reference files contained in the Current Folder. If you are working with a sound file, Matlab will search for the file contained in the Current Folder. It is possible to reference files outside of the Current Folder, but the location of the file must be explicitly provided.
Next, let’s look at the Matlab m-file, an aspect of the development environment allowing commands to be grouped, saved, and executed together.
