I am in need of using goto command in matlab. I came to know that there is no goto command in matlab. But there are programs that run using goto command (got from net) where i am getting the output.
Example 1
a = 5;
a = a - 1;
disp(a)
if a > 0
goto(4)
return
end
Example 2
a = 5;
if a == 5
goto(9)
return
else
goto(12)
return
end
disp('a equals five')
goto(13)
return
disp('a does not equal five')
For Example 1 and 2 i'm able to get the output. But when i am using in my program goto(170) i am getting an error "Undefined function 'goto' for input arguments of type 'double'".
Can somebody help me. Thanks in ADVANCE...!

Ok, so you've downloaded a function "goto" from the file exchange, and it's probably just using "eval" on every line from the one you tell it, to the end of the function. (This is an orgy of bad programming practice.)
To use it, you need to make sure that the goto.m (or goto.p) file is on your matlab path:
addpath('C:\This is where I keep bad m files\')
