WHERE Get Information on Program Stack
Section: Inspection Functions
UsageReturns information on the current stack. The usage is
The result is a kind of stack trace that indicates the state of the current call stack, and where you are relative to the stack.
ExampleSuppose we have the following chain of functions.
chain1.m function chain1 a = 32; b = a + 5; chain2(b)
chain2.m function chain2(d) d = d + 5; chain3
chain3.m function chain3 g = 54; f = g + 1; keyboard
The execution of the
where command shows the stack trace.
