Making test data in MATLAB 4

Posted by Doug Hull,

Many times when trying to test an algorithm or understand code written by someone else, it is beneficial to run the code with data you understand already. For that purpose, I have several standard types of data that I can quickly load or synthesize. I know that these datasets do not have NaN, Inf, or any other entries that often wreck algorithms that do not need to handle them.

Doug, These were helpful tips, especially the RANDPERM one. I'll definitely be using that. Thanks a lot, Bård

Aha! Thanks for highlighting these shortcuts and functions. They are sometimes not so easy to discover in all the documentation. Very neatly done.
