Hello,
I have an problem and I made one code to solve that but I got an error.
Actually I have an function which I want to run in loop so I made function file and then make anouther programme to call that function but "for" loop variable is making error.
My code is somewhat complecated so I write here replica of that for example by which you all can have idea.
My function file code is:
function y=mytest(x)
y(t)=x(t)+1;
y=y(t);
end
and my programme file code is :
b=1:10;
myfun=@mytest;
for t=1:1:max(b)
a(t)=myfun(b(t));
end
I am getting thi error:
Undefined function or variable 't'.
Error in mytest (line 2)
y(t)=x(t)+1;
Error in myrun (line 4)
a(t)=myfun(x(t));
Please help me or suggest me what to do.
Thank you.

b=1:10;
for t=1:1:max(b)
myfun = @(x) mytest(x,t); %<--- parameterized
a(t)=myfun(b(t));
end
function y=mytest(x,t) %<--- now receives t as well
y(t)=x(t)+1;
y=y(t);
end
This will fail, of course. You are passing the scalar b(t) into mytest, but you are expecting to be able to index it at t.

Thank you.
your given syntax "myfun = @(x) mytest(x,t);" helped me to solve problem.

You pass in a value that the function sees as x, but you are trying to use t. You need to pass your b(t) value AND your t value if you need them, but it looks like you just want to add one to your value.
b=1:10;
myfun=@mytest;
for t=1:1:max(b)
a(t)=myfun(b(t));
end
function y=mytest(x)
y=x+1;
% y(t)=x(t)+1;
% y=y(t);
end
