DSP-First (and SP-First) MATLAB Files
Updated for MATLAB Ver 9.3, R2017b
Should work on all versions of MATLAB back to 7.2
Installation Procedure to add these files to MATLAB and update MATLAB's path:
Once the MATLABPATH is correct, you should be able to type
- Download the ZIP file that contains everything. It is called
spfirst_vNNN.zip somewhere. A good choice would be the directory:
...\MATLAB\toolbox\spfirst\. The unzip will create a bunch of subdirectories.
NOTE: use forward slash for directories on Mac or Linux.
- Then add this one directory
...\MATLAB\toolbox\spfirst\ to the MATLAB path. This can be done in MATLAB from the Home Tab ➤ Environment ➤ Set Path.
NOTE: For versions previous to R2012a, select from menu File ➤ Set Path.
- Next, type the command
spfirst at the MATLAB comand prompt. It will add the other appropriate subdirectories to the path.
- Finally, under Home Tab ➤ Environment ➤ Set Path, do a save of the new path.
sindrill at the MATLAB command prompt and have a GUI start up.
Also, commands like
zprint will now work.
UN-install: Delete all the files and directories in
...\MATLAB\toolbox\spfirst\, and also manually remove the directories from MATLAB's path via Home Tab ➤ Environment ➤ Set Path.
The M-files should be platform-independent, i.e., insensitive to end-of-line terminators for Unix/Mac versus Windows.

The core functionality of MATLAB has changed very little since version 3 in the early 1990's.
