# feval

multiple evaluation

### Calling Sequence

```[z]=feval(x,y,f)
[z]=feval(x,f)```

### Arguments

x,y

two vectors

f

a function or a character string (for Fortran or C call)

### Description

Multiple evaluation of a function for one or two arguments of vector type :

z=feval(x,f)

returns the vector `z` defined by `z(i)=f(x(i))`

z=feval(x,y,f)

returns the matrix `z` such as `z(i,j)=f(x(i),y(j))`

`f` is an external (function or routine) accepting on one or two arguments which are supposed to be real. The result returned by `f` can be real or complex. In case of a Fortran call, the function `f` must be defined in the subroutine `fevaltable.c` (in directory `SCI/modules/differential_equations/src/c`).

### Examples

```deff('[z]=f(x,y)','z=x^2+y^2');
feval(1:10,1:5,f)
deff('[z]=f(x,y)','z=x+%i*y');
feval(1:10,1:5,f)
feval(1:10,1:5,'parab')   //See ffeval.f file
feval(1:10,'parab')
// For dynamic link (see example ftest in ffeval.f)
// you can use the link command (the parameters depend on the machine):

• evstr — evaluation of expressions
• horner — polynomial/rational evaluation
• execstr — execute Scilab code in strings
• external — Scilab Object, external function or routine
