Error using input
Unrecognized function or variable 'kl'.
Error in load (line 3)
x = input(prompt)

You accidentally created your own load.m that is interfering with using MATLAB's load() function.
Also, it appears that you might be expecting the user to enter a character string instead of a numeric value. If that is the case, you should be using the optional second parameter of input(), the 's' option
x = input(prompt, 's')
