1.2 Matlab interface

For the most part, you will interact with MATLAB by typing commands at the command prompt. The command prompt looks like >> in the MATLAB command window. The MATLAB program also has a typical Windows interface with menus such as File, Edit, View, etc. In addition to the main Command Window there is also a second Editor/Debugger window. You will use this window to write scripts and program. Before you learn to do that, you need to learn about how to use MATLAB interactively.
