MATLAB: Lottopick(m) Undefined function or variable ‘john’.

student

i have to create a random number generator. i think i got a code that would work but im having issues! when i call on the funciton, ie. lottopick(john),
it starts the function code but immediatley i get error undefined function or variable 'john'.
this is the code i have written thus far
function []=lottopick(name)
lotto = randi(54, [1 6 ]);
lotto=sort(lotto);
fprintf('%s, your lotto picks are %d %d %d %d %d %d \n', name, lotto)
end

  • You most likely need to enclose the name in single quotes:
    lottopick('john'),
