Hardlim matlab function should look like a step:

enter image description here

But the code provided at the documentation page

n = -5:0.1:5;
a = hardlim(n);

gives me this output:

enter image description here


The error you see is caused by the plotting: You sample the function from $-5$ to $5$ with step size $0.1$, and plot these values.

-0.2 => 0
-0.1 => 0
 0   => 1
 0.1 => 1

Plotting module then connects these points with a line that looks exactly like your image.

  • $\begingroup$ I understood but ıf you show this graph a pupil he will say different. Already math formula and math graphs isnt common? I think this is matlab's error. Thanks for editing and answer. $\endgroup$ – murat tuna Aug 13 '19 at 10:55
  • $\begingroup$ Isnt it a bug @jan kukacka $\endgroup$ – murat tuna Aug 13 '19 at 11:03
  • $\begingroup$ It is not a bug. This is how plot works: You give it (x,y) coordinates and it draws a line going through them. If you want to plot the step function exactly (i.e. draw the step line), you need to give it corresponding coordinates: plot([-1,0,0,1], [0,0,1,1]) $\endgroup$ – Jan Kukacka Aug 13 '19 at 11:10
  • $\begingroup$ I got but finally the graphs express as an example -0.2=0.2 .Then it is bug in my opinion @jan $\endgroup$ – murat tuna Aug 13 '19 at 16:02
