I have a basic function that calculates 3 matrices. I want to, as part of the function, save them to my workspace. Im sure there used to be a simple way of doing that but i cant remember what that is.
cheers alex

As you said you have a function. Take the output of those matrices from function.

So, you have a function that computes three matrices. You can have it return 3 output arguments. You just need to modify the function definition to look like this:
function [mat1, mat2, mat3] = functionName()
%%%%your code to compute 3 matrices%%%
%%%assign the 3 matrices to mat1, mat2, mat3%%%
end
Call the function:
[mat1, mat2, mat3] = functionName()
In your workspace, the variables mat1, mat2, mat3 will now have the 3 matrices.
