if you just type "clear", it will clean everything.
get first 10 items from priceY (an existing var) and create a new var -- V
save filename variablename will save the variable into a file.
You can save with -ascii which will make the file readable (not binary)
But I found both readable (at least both readable for small files, it may compress for large files)
above is tell us about indexing. how to access elements in the matrix
a(3,2) will return the element value of row 3 column 2 which is the last element ---6
":" means everything . a(2,:) will return row 2 . a(:,2) will return column 2
you also can use this to set values:
a(3,2) = 100 will change the last element.
a(:,2) = [8;9;10] will change the second column , it will change the whole column. (we need to give vector because a(:,2) is a vector)
change all data into a vector
connect two matrixes
"," or " " will put the second matrix on to the right of the first one.
";" will put it below
