Cool feature: Run configurations 3

Posted by Doug Hull,

This cool feature will be useful to many MATLAB users that write functions and want an easy way to test them in multiple configurations.

I like to hit F5 to save and run a script, but in the past if you had a function, you could not do this since you usually need to give inputs to a function. Run configurations allow you to run a little script to feed the function inputs. Want to test your new function with a few small data sets easily? Normally you might make a script to do that, and then have to write a new one for when you want to test against the full data set. With run configurations you can easily change between the two and run with a click of F5.

Great video Doug! You can check out the debut blog entry for this feature here: https://blogs.mathworks.com/community/2007/09/17/running-functions-with-input-from-the-editor-in-r2007b/ -Ken

Dear Doug I have always written script files to drive my functions if I want to test them. I could then easily copy both these functions and script files from one PC to another and continue working on the functions. When using the "Run Configurations" method, I would like to know where this configuration file is stored so that I can copy it together with my function files from one PC to another. Regards Paul

Hi Paul, Your absolutely right! Configurations should be more visible than they are now. In fact, we're actively working on a solution to this, which would deliver the visibility and transportability you desire. I can't promise when it will be released, but I can tell you it is my main focus right now! -Ken
