MATLAB: Can we add a statement in between the codes

Is it possible to add statements in between the codes. For example: If I have a code like this,
r(:,1) = a(:,1) - a(:,2);
Then can I write it as,
r(:,1) = a(:,1)("this is a constant") - a(:,2)("this is a variable");

  • Nyet, no such syntax exists.
    About the closest you can get is something like
    r = a - ... % this is a constant
    b; % this is a variable
    BTW: in Matlab the single quote is used for character constants, not the apostrophe.
    See the Getting Started section in the doc on the basic syntax
    doc punct % will get you to the special punctuation including %
