Error in stsnew ?!

Undefined function or variable 'pro'.
Error in elaz (line 50)

where to change the inclination?

mihai p

not very professional. Also, why is the azimuth 90 or 270?

incl has to be changed to i in order to work


This program would be great for a paper I'm writing but I meet the same problem computing i (inclination): Matlab tells me ther's a callback function problem.
