I'm using this code to create a light source that emanates light to all directions:
light('Position', [0 0 0], 'Style', 'local')
but I receive the following error (MATLAB 2015a):
Error using light
Too many input arguments.
Error in ThreeDsim_GUI_ThreeDsim_GUI_OpeningFcn (line 276)
light('Position', [0 0 0], 'Style', 'local')
Error in gui_mainfcn (line 220)
feval(gui_State.gui_OpeningFcn, gui_hFigure, [], guidata(gui_hFigure), varargin{:});
Error in ThreeDsim_GUI (line 43)
gui_mainfcn(gui_State, varargin{:});
The format is exactly according to the Help but I can't find out the reason for error. I'd be grateful if you could help.

You were right. There was a file named "light" in the folder. I renamed it and now the problem is solved. Thank you!

Just upgrade. It works for me in R2015b.
