I think the best you could get in terms of script would be the one from the tutorial. If it does not work for you, could you specify what causes you to get stuck exactly?

My problem is not that I don't understand the nature of the trl matrix (which is easy enough to surmise by looking at ft_definetrial.m). Rather, it is understanding how the whole script is supposed to work -- which is why I was looking for a working script. (I haven't been able to find one in http://fieldtrip.fcdonders.nl/example.) So in this case, one script would be worth a thousand words for me.
