4.1 GettingtheInputandOutput
Arguments
Afunctionmayhaveseveralinputsandseveraloutputs.Usenarginandnargoutto
determinethenumberofinputandoutputargumentsinaparticularfunctioncall.Use
nargchkandnargoutchktoverifythatyourfunctioniscalledwiththerequirednumberof
inputandoutputarguments.
Example:
Wecreatethefollowingfunction:
function [x,y] = myfunc(a,b,c,d)
disp(nargchk(2,4,nargin)) % Allow 2 to 4 inputs
disp(nargoutchk(0,2,nargout)) % Allow 0 to 2 outputs
x = a + b;
y = a * b;
if nargin == 3
x = a + b + c;
y = a * b * c;
end
if nargin == 4
x = a + b + c + d;
y = a * b * c * d;
end
WetestthefunctionintheCommandwindowwithdifferentinputsandoutputs:
>> [x, y] = myfunc(1,2)

>> [x, y] = myfunc(1,2,3)
