MATLAB: Does it appear “Error: Function definitions are not permitted in this context” when I run the following function file

errorfunctions

I have two files for running:
The first one is a script I named preambulo.m which runs ok. The second one is a function which I named final_project_mc.m, when I run this file, it appears the error that I mentioned in the initial question, and I don't know why this is happening. In order to do this exercise you need to run first preambulo.m and then final_project_mc. M.
I would really appreciate any help with this problem.

  • As the error says, you can't directly execute an m-file which defines a function; you Call the function from a script or another function.
    To call the function you would simply incorporate the line
    final_project_mc(b)
    at the end of the script which would return the output array at the command line as the default variable ans or assign it to a variable as
    end_result = final_project_mc(b);

    and section on programming for how scripts and functions work in the "Getting Started" section.
