    About Functions Being RemovedThis section lists functions removed or in the process of being removed.Functions typically go through several stages across multiple releases beforebeing completely removed. This provides time for you to make adjustmentsto your code.

    Announcement The release notes announce the planned removal, butthere are no functional changes; the function runs as it did before.

    Warning When you run the function, it displays a warning messageindicating it will be removed in a future release; otherwise the functionruns as it did before.

    Error When you run the function, it produces an error. The error messageindicates the function was removed and suggests a replacement function, ifone is available.

    Removal When you run the function, it fails. The error message is thestandard message when MATLAB does not recognize an entry.

    Functions might be in a stage for one or more releases before moving toanother stage. Functions are listed in the Functions Being Removed sectiononly when they enter a new stage and their behavior changes. For example,if a function displayed a warning in the previous release and errors in thisrelease, it appears on the list. If it continues to display a warning, it does notappear on the list because there was no change between the releases.

    Not all functions go through all stages. For example, a functions impendingremoval might not be announced, but instead the first notification might bethat the function displays a warning.

    The release notes include actions you can take to mitigate the effects of afunctions removal, such as adapting yo
