Programming with MATLAB: Setup

You will need to install MATLAB or GNU Octave to do this lesson.

You will also need to download some data, which we will analyze using MATLAB:

  1. Download and move the file to your Desktop.
  2. Extract the zip archive. This will create a matlab-novice-inflammation directory containing the data files used in the lesson. Note that on Windows, double-clicking on the zip file simply previews the contents: to extract, right-click and select Extract All
  3. You can access this folder from the Unix shell with:

     cd Desktop/matlab-novice-inflammation/
