I heard it often when trying to persuade my parents to allow me to do something they didn't want me to do.

Function is as functiontests

Today we have a post from guest blogger Andy Campbell to highlight a function-based approach for writing tests in MATLAB. We will be demonstrating how you can write simple functions that aid you in designing a physical system. This approach allows you to iterate quickly and improve your designs while protecting you from violating requirements met by earlier solutions.... read more >>

We just had an interesting thread at MathWorks prompted by a customer request to programmatically distinguish between script and function MATLAB files. The File Browser already shows these separately. I will show some ideas we had and what we agreed was a good way to attack this.... read more >>
