This example shows how to plot the histogram of error values of a trained feed-forward network.

Create a feed-forward network and train it using the data from the simple fit data set. Then plot the histogram of error values.

[x,t] = simplefit_dataset;
net = feedforwardnet(20);
net = train(net,x,t);
y = net(x);
e = t - y;

Input Arguments
