I want to generate a sample of 1-D random numbers in an interval [a, b] following Gaussian distribution (using the analytical expression for probability density distribution(PDF)).

What would that even mean? Do you want to specify the mean and Standard deviation then truncate anything outside of [A,B]?

It seems you already found your solution on file exchange. Why don't you use it?
Your input function will be
myfun = @(x) exp(-(x - m).^2 ./ (2*sigma^2)) ./ (sigma*sqrt(2*pi));
