|Desktop Tools and Development Environment|
Summary of Desktop Tools
The following tools are managed by the MATLAB desktop, although not all of them appear by default when you first start. If you prefer a command-line interface, you can often use equivalent functions to accomplish the same result. You must use these equivalent functions to perform the operations in M-files. Instructions for using equivalent functions are provided with the documentation for each tool.
