Is it possible to use a function of Matlab toolbox without installing the tolboox itself?

Hi guys,
I need to use the function "wrapTo360" but I want to avoid installing the "Mapping toolbox".
Is it possible or do I have necessarily install the toolbox?
Thank you in advance!

You can just use basic tools to wrap angles.
A = -360:40:360
A = 1×19
-360 -320 -280 -240 -200 -160 -120 -80 -40 0 40 80 120 160 200 240 280 320 360
B1 = wrapTo360(A)
B1 = 1×19
0 40 80 120 160 200 240 280 320 0 40 80 120 160 200 240 280 320 360
B2 = mod(A,360);
mask = A>0 & B2==0;
B2(mask) = 360
B2 = 1×19
0 40 80 120 160 200 240 280 320 0 40 80 120 160 200 240 280 320 360

That's up to you to decide. I'm not familiar with using wrapto360() in its intended applications, so I don't know if that little detail is important for some particular reason. If you're trying to use code that was written around using wrapto360(), I'd probably try to replicate its behavior unless I were certain that I didn't need it. It seems like a negligible compromise to make.

You would need to install the toolbox to have access to the functions it contains.
If you have access to MATLAB Online, you could try running your code there. All toolboxes you have access to are pre-loaded for you.
