Subject: Re: Undefined function or variable - for no reason...


I am facing the same problem today.

I try to run the .m file in my current directory and Matlab would give the message - "Undefined function or variable". I add the current path and still it does not recognize any .m file in the current directory.

Moreover, any new .m file is not running at all, while some of the old .m files I executed previously are working fine.

Any help is most appreciated!

Many thanks,
