For the Control System Toolbox there are four different help-like PDF documents:

  1. Toolbox Getting Started Guide: Helps a beginner to be introduced to a toolbox
  2. Toolbox User's Guide: contains all the details of your toolbox, illustrated with examples
  3. Toolbox Reference: Should be a sorted list of functions, that explain those functions
  4. Toolbox Release Notes: provides quick access to what's new in each version
