I'm trying to solve this system:
sin(x)+y-2=0
x-y+1=0
with this procedure:
M=@(x,y)[sin(x)+y-2;x-y+1];
x0=[1,0];
Sol=fsolve(M,x0);
but I obtain an error. Could you please help me? Thank you.

fsolve needs a function which has only one variable. Therefore, you need to change your definition to
M=@(x)[sin(x(1))+x(2)-2;x(1)-x(2)+1];
The rest of your code is fine.

As Torsten said, there's no such function as far as I know. However, when I had the similar problem, I just typed in all the equations with the "natural" variable names in a blank file and then replaced the variable names by x(1), x(2) and so on (press ctrl+h). It's less likely to type in errors this way.
