Adding scripts/functions to your PATH in MATLAB#

The PATH variable contains a list of paths (directories on your system). This list of paths will be searched, in order, whenever you call a function or a script by name.

If a file you want to run is not in a directory in your PATH variable, MATLAB will not know where to look for it.

To add a directory to the PATH, use addpath() as follows



While scripts can have any name, functions in MATLAB must have the same name as the file in which they are contained.

e.g. for the function my_function() to be available it must be in a file called my_function.m.
