1.2: Finding Help for M-file Environments

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12
Turn In

There is a wealth of information available about using most m-file environments. In fact, the amount of information may overwhelm someone who is beginning.

The help command can be used to get information about a specific command or function. For example, typing help cos at the command prompt will give information about the cosine function. Typing help will give general information.

A significant amount of information is available on the World Wide Web:

MATLAB: Useful information is available at the MATLAB Helpdesk page (http://www.mathworks.de/help/pdf_doc/matlab/programming_tips.pdf)

Includes reference material for MATLAB's functions (http://www.mathworks.in/help/techdoc/ref/f16-6011.html)

LabVIEW MathScript: Useful information is available at the National Instruments LabVIEW MathScript Portal (http://www.ni.com/labview/mathscript/)

Includes an interactive demonstration of MathScript (http://www.ni.com/swf/demos/us/labview/mscriptwindow/default.htm)

Octave: The definitive source for information is The official GNU Octave Manual (http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/doc/interpreter/index.html#Top)

Also, one of many good tutorials is available (http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/MATLAB_Programming/GNU_Octave)
