I wrote this program in MATLAB that converts units (for homework). My teacher doesn't like MATLAB but I do, so I've decided to make everything a bit fancy and a bit overboard.

Thus far I've made my program to pop up a menu where in which you pick a unit then put in a value then it converts it to other units.

I want to know how to make it loop in itself so that if I want to convert more values, I can just go back so that I don't have to run the program again.

Can you help me please?

Ok I asked my other friend. It was much simpler than I thought it was.

``````function FtoC
exit=false;
while(exit~=true)
%This converts any temperature unit to any other.
entry=menu('Which unit do you want to convert?','Fahrenheit','Celsius','Kelvin','Exit');
switch(entry)
case 1
f=inputdlg('Enter Temperature in Fahrenheit','Fahrenheit to Celsius and Kelvin');
f=str2num(mat2str(cell2mat(f)));
if (f<-459.4)
msgbox('Invalid temperature input, cannot exceed absolute zero','INVALID INPUT','error')
else
c=(5/9)*(f-32);
k=c+273.15;
msgbox([num2str(f),'°F',' = ',num2str(c),'°C',' = ',num2str(k),'°K'],'Temperature');
end
case 2
c=inputdlg('Enter Temperature in Celsius','Celsius to Fahrenheit and Kelvin');
c=str2num(mat2str(cell2mat(c)));
if (c<-273.15)
msgbox('Invalid temperature input, cannot exceed absolute zero','INVALID INPUT','error')
else
f=c*1.8+32;
k=c+273.15;
msgbox([num2str(c),'°C',' = ',num2str(f),'°F',' = ',num2str(k),'°K'],'Temperature');
end
case 3
k=inputdlg('Enter Temperature in Kelvin','Kelvin to Fahrenheit and Celsius');
k=str2num(mat2str(cell2mat(k)));
if k<0
msgbox('Invalid temperature input, cannot exceed absolute zero','INVALID INPUT','error')
else
f=k*1.8-459.67;
c=k-273.15;
msgbox([num2str(k),'°K',' = ',num2str(f),'°F',' = ',num2str(c),'°C'],'Temperature');
end
otherwise
exit=true;
msgbox('Thank you for using this program!','Goodbye','help');
end
end``````

Its a nice program, why don't you post it at kluid ( http://www.kluid.com ). You may like to make GUI out of this, a more professional approach. Nice work!

I don't know what GUI is yet but I'll look into it.

There's really nothing hard about this program though. I learned it from my friend who's really good at programming and he likes to make things fancy and pretty.
