Types of errors, MATLAB in Statistics

Types of errors:

There are some various kinds of errors which can occur in a program, that fall into the categories of run-time errors, syntax errors, and logical errors.

The Syntax errors are mistakes in using the language. Illustrations of syntax errors are missing a comma or a quotation mark, or misspelling a word. The MATLAB itself will flag syntax errors and give an error message. For illustration, the string below is missing the end quote:

>> mystr = 'how are you;

??? mystr = 'how are you;

         ¦

Error: The MATLAB string constant is not finished properly.

The other common mistake is to spell a variable name wrongly, that MATLAB will also catch.

>> value = 5;

>> newvalue = valu + 3;

??? Undefined function or variable 'valu'.
