Hey all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose I have a MATLAB function that returns two (or more) output arguments, but I only care about the second one, and I do not wish to assign the value of the first one to a variable.

What bugs me is when, for example, I solve an ODE:

[t, x] = ode45(blablabla)

and then MATLAB editor's automatic syntax checker tells me that the variable 't' is never used. Of course it isn't, because I don't need it :P But more importantly, it uses some memory unnessarily. So, is there any way to totally ignore that argument?

Thank you all!
