mtlb_double

Matlab double emulation function

Description

Matlab and Scilab double behave differently in some particular cases:

  • With character string input: Scilab double does not work with this type of input while Matlab double returns a matrix of ASCII codes.

  • With boolean input: Scilab double does not work with this type of input while Matlab double returns a matrix of double values.

The function mtlb_double(A) is used by mfile2sci to replace double(A) when it was not possible to know what were theinput while porting Matlab code to Scilab. This function will determine the correct semantic at run time. If you want to have a more efficient code it is possible to replace mtlb_double calls:

  • If A is a character string, mtlb_double(A) may be replaced by asciimat(A)

  • If A is a boolean matrix, mtlb_double(A) may be replaced by bool2s(A)

  • If A is a double matrix, mtlb_double(A) may be replaced by A

Caution: mtlb_double has not to be used for hand coded functions.
