Matlab more emulation function


Matlab more and Scilab lines behave differently in some particular cases:

  • With character strings as input: Matlab more can take "on" and "off" as input but not Scilab lines but there are equivalents (0 and 60).

The function mtlb_more(in) is used by mfile2sci to replace more(in) when it was not possible to know what was the input 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_more calls:

  • If in is equal to "on" mtlb_more(in) may be replaced by lines(60)

  • If in is equal to "off" mtlb_more(in) may be replaced by lines(0)

  • If in is a double value mtlb_more(in) may be replaced by lines(in)

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