The reference manual is part of the installation archive zip. The file named
is available in the subfolder ^help
on the IRIS root path. The following command opens the reference manual from the Matlab command window once you install IRIS
You can also get the manual from the
of this website (look for Other Available Downloads under the latest release). The manual provides a description of most of the IRIS functions; it is though not a user guide or a tutorial.
Instructions how to
Download and Install IRIS
are available both on the website and in the reference manual. See also
on all releases.
Short tutorials with commented m-files, model files and reports explaining various areas of IRIS functionality are available from the
section. We also welcome your help
in writing tutorials on the undocumented-yet features of IRIS.
Help in Matlab
The IRIS reference manual is accessible from the Matlab Help browser window. Press the Help button in the Matlab window (or simply
), click on Supplemental Software, and then choose IRIS Toolbox in the pane on the right.
In addition, you can use the usual Matlab help
command to display help on a specific IRIS function in the command window; see the reference manual for the list of topics and function names. Alternatively, you can use the IRIS
, which displays the same help but in a browser window instead:
>> help model/simulate
>> idoc model/simulate
You can post your questions and comments on the
