I accidentally overwrote the clear command in matlab mobile and now cannot clear that variable or any other ones for that matter. Anybody know how I can clear variables on matlab mobile without using the clear command?

Does clearvars works?
clearvars X* %clear all variables starting with X

What would be the exact syntax, I'm new with Matlab.
I typed:
clearvars clear
and the result was:
Index exceeds matrix dimensions.
Error in clearvars (line 93)
evalin('caller', clearExpr);
