The while loop runs 8 times and keeps overriding an old value with the new one as the result gets closer to the error bound that I have specified. What I'm trying to do is store every value that the function spits out to a vector so I can plot it.

I have this code.
function goes here that produces 3 values for sol


if sol~=0
my error function goes here

if err_ap <= .05 | iter >= maxit, break, end

I ran this code in command window and typed in in vect and it only spits out one value.
