Automatically plot different colored lines

You could use a colormap such as HSV to generate a set of colors. For example:

hold on;
for i=1:12
    plot([0 1],[0 i],'color',cc(i,:));

MATLAB has 13 different named colormaps (‘doc colormap’ lists them all).

Another option for plotting lines in different colors is to use the LineStyleOrder property; see Defining the Color of Lines for Plotting in the MATLAB documentation for more information.
