I'm the umbrella to protect you from the rain. There are over 14000 m-files in a standard install. The help file does not list 'why' as a command making it undocumented. Just because 'why' is in an m-file does not make it documented. If writing a command into software makes it documented then there would be know software eggs because they'd have to be coded ("documented") to run in the first place.

Hate to rain on your parade, but 'why' is a *documented* command. One can expand the range of "philosophical" answers by editing the WHY.M file (I know I did).
