I wanna define function which has flexible number of argument.

Hello and happy new year!
Now I'm considering to define function which has flexible arguments.
For example, let's have function F which full argument number is 3 such as F(a,b,c)
If b is 0, user don't need to assign c thus F(a,b) is enough. Otherwise full argument assignment is required.
Can I make this kind of flexible function?

function out = F(varargin)
% do stuffs
% y = varargin{1}+varargin{2}
% out = y+1; etc.
For flexible number of outputs:
function varargout = F(varargin)
% do stuffs
% varargout{1} = varargin{1}-varargin{2}
% etc.

Oh, you're right. I've just not known varargin and used arbitary variable name. As the result, it was not operated! Thanks to your advice! my function is now upgraded:)
