Matlab box emulation function


There is no Scilab equivalent function for Matlab box but it can be easyly replaced.

The function mtlb_box([axes_handle[,val]]) is used by mfile2sci to replace box([axes_handle[,va]]l) when it was not possible to know what were the inputs 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_box calls:

  • When called without input parameters, mtlb_box() may be replaced by a=gca();if"on" then"off";else"on";end;

  • If axes_handle is a character string, mtlb_box(axes_handle) may be replaced by a=gca();,"l");

  • If axes_handle is a graphic handle mtlb_box(axes_handle) may be replaced by if"on" then"off";else"on";end;

  • If axes_handle is a graphic handle and val is a character string mtlb_box(axes_handle,val) may be replaced by,"l");

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