The purpose of this chapter is to provide an overview of MATLAB syntax and programming, highlighting features that may be underutilized by many users and noting important differences between MATLAB and other programming languages and integrated development environments (IDEs). You should also become familiar with the very detailed documentation that is available from MathWorks in the help browser. The “Language Fundamentals” section of the MathWorks web site describes entering commands, operators, and data types.
