Matlab includes extensive documentation resources about the programming language and the built-in functions. This resource can be a very helpful reference while you are programming.


The Matlab Documentation is available within the development environment under the ‘Help’ tab of the menu bar. Additionally, this same resource is available online from the Matlab website.


By accessing the documentation, it is unnecessary for a programmer to memorize the syntax for every function. Rather, an experienced programmer is familiar with quickly searching and understanding the available resources to determine how to write their code.




By now, we have looked at how to write a script to execute commands and make us of a few features of the Matlab development environment. Next, let’s explore some more advanced concepts of programming called: Control Structures.
