Where do I get help ?

MATLAB is an interactive programme with on-line help. To get an overview of MATLAB type intro from the MATLAB prompt. The help command tells you the topics (directories) available in MATLAB. The command help directory_name or help function_name gives more detailed help about the directory or the function. You can also look for a particular topic by typing lookfor topic.
