Is there a possibility to add or write a sort of a description for the variables used in the code without using comments or writing their meaning in an adjacent txt file for instance?
I'm imagine it in my head as if it's possible to implement a description in matlab so that, for example, if I hover over a variable in the code a short description written by me appears.
Thanks !

So you want a tooltip to appear, hovering over each variable or line of code, but have no explicitly written comments in the code? Sorry, but this is not something implemented in MATLAB.
Is it possible to do in some other language? Of course. Start writing, since you may nee to implement the entire programming language yourself. Or pick some language that I don't know of, which may already have this caapability. But MATLAB is not an option, at least not at this date, or even in the near future.
Of course, you could submit this as a feature request, but I doubt it will happen anytime soon, as this would be a massive change in how the code and editor works.

Thank you for your answers, of course I do name variables properly, but sometimes it's still better to have some sort of a description, describing the variable for what it does and how it acts. I don't know any other language that does this, it just occured to me and so I thought to ask because why not. But I guess the massive change in how the editor works is an enough why not.
Thanks !
