Writing variables to a File:
The save command is used to write variables to a file, or to append the variables to a MAT-file. By the default, save function writes to a MAT-file. It can either save the whole present workspace (all variables which have been generated), or a subset of the workspace (involving, for illustration, just 1 variable). The function save will save the file in the present directory, therefore it is important to set that properly first.

The .mat extension is automatically added to the filename. The contents of the file can be exhibited by using who with the -file qualifier:
who -file filename
