error : "Matrix dimensions must agree" at STFT code

Dear friends,
I am very new to matlab so forgive my ignorance. I am trying to make a code for an STFT (Short Time Fourier Transform) and then apply it to a wav. file so that i can plot the spectogramm of this wav. file.
Here is the code:
function Xtwz = mystft(x, M, R, N, w) nframes = floor(length(x)/R)1; Xtwz = zeros(N,nframes); % preallocate STFT output array M = length(w); % M = window length, N = FFT length zp = zeros(NM,1); % zero padding (to be inserted) xoff = 0; % current offset in input signal x Mo2 = (M1)/2; % Assume M odd for simplicity here for m=1:nframes xt = x(xoff+1:xoff+M); % extract frame of input data xtw = w .* xt; % apply window to current frame if (NM)~=0 xtwz = [xtw(Mo2+1:M); zp; xtw(1:Mo2)]; % windowed, zero padded else xtwz = xtw; end Xtwz(:,m) = fft(xtwz); % STFT for frame m xoff = xoff + R; % advance inpointer by hopsize R end I input a small wav file, and I give values to M=100, R=50, N=1024, w=hamming(M), and x=data (from the input file). Then when i try to apply the function "mystft" I get the error : "Error using .* /Matrix dimensions must agree./ Error in mystft (line 16)/ xtw = w.*xt; % apply window to current frame"
First of all I am not sure whether the values that i have given to M,R,N are right, and secondly I dont know how can i get rid of this error.
Any help would be appreciated,
Thanks in advance
