Hi. I've uploaded a file to the file exchange and it works well for me. A person has downloaded the file and has problems with the error described. The file and question is at:
Apparently the error "Function definitions are not permitted in this context" arises after typing:
polarG (0 + 0j, 2 + 1 * j, .1,30, 'r', 1)
When I do this, I get the figure I expect. Could someone please look at the code in question and advise how to fix the source of the error?

They tried to put that line at the top of the file and then run the result. They need to store the file unchanged and type that line at the command prompt.

Hi Walter, That sounds reasonable. I've posted your answer to the file exchange, and await a reply from the user.
Thank you.
