Is there any command using which we can get the list of reserved words used in Matlab? ex- iskeyword command gives list of some keyword, but there are lots of other reserved words ex- realmin. we want the list of all the reservd words?

You can find all of the keywords by opening iskeyword.m
As for builtin functions etc. You can test if it is a function or variable by running:
which -all your_name
This will return what everything is for the string your_name

realmin is not a reserved keyword: it is a function, and you can create a variable of the same name.
The reserved keywords are the constructs such as "if" that will always be recognized as MATLAB syntax and cannot be assigned a value.
