end
The error is ?? Error: File: wave.m Line: 22 Column: 14 The input character is not valid in MATLAB statements or expressions.
But, after I erase the ' symbol, the error become ??? Input argument "xf" is undefined.
Error in ==> wave at 7 dx = xf/M; x = [0:M]*dx;
Anyone can tell me what's wrong for this code?thanks!

In your pasted code it seems like you have used the slightly tilted ’ instead of ' for the apostrophe (or whatever the correct name of it is). Replace them with '
