One of the reasons I like using anonymous functions is because they allow me to express whatever function I want to use as a function of the relevant arguments in different contexts.... read more >>

# Delaying Evaluation of Function Inputs8

Posted by Loren Shure,

When you call a function in MATLAB, MATLAB first evaluates all the inputs, and then passes these (possibly) computed values as the inputs. Recently Ljubomir Josifovski asked if there was a way to delay evaluation of function inputs and only evaluate them... read more >>

# Combining Functions9

Posted by Loren Shure,

For a lot of calculations, it makes sense to combine operations into a single expression. You can sometimes do this easily when you have function handles and you generate one final function that you can apply. ... read more >>

# Using str2func for Anonymous Function Handle Creation25

Posted by Loren Shure,

Starting in Release 2009a, str2func lets you create a handle to anonymous function. Before that, you need to construct an anonymous function from literal strings, or using some ugly code involving eval. ... read more >>

# Keeping Things Tidy28
