mtlb_strfind

Matlab strfind emulation function

Description

Matlab strfind and Scilab strindex behave differently in some particular cases:

  • With inputs which not character strings: Matlab strfind can be used with not character strings inputs but not Scilab strindex.

The function mtlb_strfind(A,B) is used by mfile2sci to replace strfind(A,B) 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_strfind calls:

  • If A and B are character strings mtlb_strfind(A,B) may be replaced by strindex(A,B)

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