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

     cd Desktop/matlab-novice-inflammation/data
