Startup MATLAB in last working folder
Updated 1 Sep 2016
This submission provides directions on how to instruct MATLAB to begin in the final working directory from the previous session of MATLAB.
There are no m-files included with this submission, just directions on how to modify startup.m and finish.m
Note: This capability was introduced directly into MATLAB, so these directions are no longer as of R2014b. There is now a preference (Preferences -> MATLAB -> General) to specify the initial working folder as the last working folder from your previous MATLAB session.
