**What does ~= mean in MATLAB?**

not equal

A ~= B returns a logical array with elements set to logical 1 ( true ) where arrays A and B are not equal; otherwise, the element is logical 0 ( false ). The test compares both real and imaginary parts of numeric arrays.

### What is the full form of MATLAB?

The name MATLAB stands for matrix laboratory. MATLAB was originally written to provide easy access to matrix software developed by the LINPACK and EISPACK projects, which together represent the state-of-the-art in software for matrix computation. MATLAB has evolved over a period of years with input from many users.

**What is the difference between clear all and CLC?**

## How do you define an int variable in MATLAB?

Creating Integer Data

- x = int16(325);
- x = 325.499; int16(x) ans = int16 325 x = x + .001; int16(x) ans = int16 326.
- x = 325.9; int16(fix(x)) ans = int16 325.
- int16(325) * 4.39 ans = int16 1427.
- str = ‘Hello World’; int8(str) ans = 1×11 int8 row vector 72 101 108 108 111 32 87 111 114 108 100.
