Hello Community,
I get an error when I execute below. Can you please direct to what could go wrong with pathdef and the resolution of this error?
Thank you in advance!
>> Run_Script
Index exceeds matrix dimensions.
Error Run_Script (line 2)

Does your Run_Script script file define a variable named path on line 1, right before it tries to call the path function on line 2? [I suspect it does.] As long as that variable exists MATLAB cannot call the path function.
Changing the name of that variable would resolve the problem, but a script file trying to reinitialize the MATLAB search path as part of its execution smells kind of bad to me. Why is your script trying to do that?

Yes, here is what it returns:
C:\Software\Mathworks\Matlab_All_Products_2017a\toolbox\matlab\codetools\@mtree\path.m % Shadowed mtree method
C:\Software\Mathworks\Matlab_All_Products_2017a\toolbox\driving\driving\@drivingScenario\path.m % Shadowed drivingScenario method
C:\Software\Mathworks\Matlab_All_Products_2017a\toolbox\matlab\general\path.m % Shadowed
