Variable with static type possible?

4 views (last 30 days)
Is it possible to declare a variable with a static type, the way it is in Java? So that I can only asign an object of the correct type to that variable?
Thank you.

To get the equivalent of a static variable in MATLAB, use persistent. When you declare a variable to be persistent within a function, its value is retained in memory between calls to that function.

However it is still possible to assign something of a different type to the variable.
