i want to plot cos(x) and sin(x) in the same figure, i have two ways :
i can write for example :
or the second way :
what is the difference between these two ways ?

If that's all you need, for the practical purpose, there isn't much difference. However, the internal settings in the two figures are different. For example, say you have another vector
W = cos(2*X);
and you want to plot it using
In the hold case, the new line will be added to the figure while in the other case, the axes will be cleared and the new plot contains only the new line.
