List M-file debugging functions

Graphical Interface

As an alternative to the debugging functions, you can use debugging features in the Debug menu and toolbar buttons of the Editor/Debugger.


debug lists M-file debugging functions.

Use debugging functions (listed in the See Also section) to help you identify problems in your M-files. Set breakpoints using dbstop. When MATLAB encounters a breakpoint during execution, it enters debug mode, the Editor/Debugger becomes active, and the prompt in the Command Window changes to a K>>. Any MATLAB command is allowed at the prompt. To resume execution, use dbcont or dbstep. To exit from debugging mode, use dbquit.
