How to overwrite some workspace variables in a dynamic program?
43 views (last 30 days)
I have a dynamic program that creates objects in the workspace (datasets, matrices) with the same name each loop but the objects themselves change size each time. Each loop I save them to a data structure and don't want to clear out the workspace. What is the best practice for "overwriting"? Ideas I have are: 1) create a new initialized matrix each time with zeros to wipe out the old matrix or 2) remove the matrix with MLDeleteMatrix(var_name) but this doesn't seem to work with my version (R2011b).

You can just reassign the variable with new content, MATLAB try to merge the new content with the old, nor will it leak memory.
