Matlab tips and tricks

This page documents how to do some non-obvious things with Matlab.

The instructions below have been tested with Matlab 7.5 .

Setting axis graduation and name

When drawing a graph, to set your axis graduation, draw your graph and run:

set (gca, 'XTick', [-2:2])

replacing [-2:2] by the values you want on your X-axis.

To set your axis name, run:

xlabel ('x')

replacing 'x' with your X-axis name.
