Matlab Window
The Command window is where you can interact with Matlab directly. Try typing the following:
>> x=5
>> y=2;
>> z=x * sqrt(y)
>>myvar = ones(2)
The output should look like this:
myvar =
1 1
1 1
This represents a 2x2 matrix of ones.
In Matlab, previous input lines cannot be edited. You can recall previous input lines by typing the "up" cursor button
(similar to bash and DOSKEY).
Cutting, copying and pasting is supported using the standards for your operating system.
The Toolbar
Systems that support graphics have a toolbar at the top of the screen, like this:
The buttons have the following functions:

New File, Open File 

Cut, Copy, and Paste 

Undo last action 

Workspace Browser. Use this to graphically edit variables. 

Path browser. Use this to edit the paths that Matlab will look in for functions.
