It is as if the for loop runs once and then stops.

At the completion of the loop I need to have a matrix for t values and a matrix for the functions g1 and g2. The original purpose of the for if loop was to apply a multiplication by a shifted rect function. But I definately see the points you are both making about overwriting the t an g1 and g2 values. Should I use some sort of indexing to build a matrix via a loop or is there an easier way to do all of this?
dbp showed you how do do it "the right way." A quick & dirty method would simply be to add indx = 1 before the loop, replace your g1 & g2 in the loop with g1(indx) & g2(indx) and add indx = indx + 1 at the end of (within) the loop.
To be more efficient, you should preallocate g1 & g2 before the loop.
