Does matlab application provide any suggestion for converting a script into function?

1 view (last 30 days)
For converting matlab scripts into functions, one have to check which variables do not have fixed value and can be converted into input parameters.
Is there any possible way for MATLAB to suggest this to the user? A way to get a list of variables and their assigned values from the script, which can then be manually inspected.

Ugh. No. There is no automatic way to do this, since one script might execute another script, or call functions which do all sorts of strange things, creating variables in your workspace on the fly.
How do you do it?
Rule 1: DON'T USE SCRIPTS. Learn to start writing functions.
Rule 2: See rule 1.

If you just add the function...end wrapper and execute, you'll find each undefined variable in turn...of course, it would be more efficient to at least do an initial cursory examination.
One could start with rudimentary grep pattern searches for assignment statements, etc., ...
