If I edit an existing function, and save the file, when does that change come into effect, in the following scenarios:
  1. Code is not running (easy - the next time the function is called)
  2. Code is running
  3. Code is running, then hits a breakpoint outside the function/file in question
  4. Code is running, then hits a pause() outside the function/file in question (and are there any other functions, e.g. drawnow(), with the same behaviour, if it is different from the norm)
  5. Code is running, then hits a breakpoint inside the function/file in question
  6. Code is running, then hits a pause() inside the function/file in question
Where in the documentation is this explained?

I cannot recall this being explained. I suspect that the function is only updated once MATLAB is idle, but hopefully one of the experienced MATLAB users will have some comment on this.. I am also interested how it works!
