Subject: Re: I'm new to matlab; why is this function wrong?

you can only define functions inside a function-file and not in a script (dont ask me why, because it bothered me too, but matlab developers usually have good reasons for doing such things)

so either:
1) transform your script into a function:
start with: "function my_script()" and end with "end"

2) define the function in an m-file that you call in your script

i hope this helps...
