type

Display contents of file

Syntax

type('filename')
type filename

Description

type('filename') displays the contents of the specified file in the MATLAB® Command Window. Use the full path for filename, or use a MATLAB relative partial path.

If you do not specify a file extension and there is no filename file without an extension, the type function adds the .m extension by default. The type function checks the folders specified in the MATLAB search path, which makes it convenient for listing the contents of files on the screen. Use type with more on to see the listing one screen at a time.

type filename is the command form of the syntax.

Examples

type('foo.bar') lists the contents of the file foo.bar.

type foo lists the contents of the file foo. If foo does not exist, type foo lists the contents of the file foo.m.
