Scilab Help >> Advanced functions > fun2string


generates ASCII definition of a Scilab function

Calling Sequence

txt = fun2string(fun, name)



a function type variable.


a character string, the generated function name.


a column vector of strings, the text giving the Scilab instructions.


Given a loaded Scilab function pseudo-code fun2string allows to re-generate the code. The generated code is indented and beautified.

The mechanism is similar, but simpler than the mfile2sci one. It may be adapted for syntax translations.


txt = fun2string(asinh,'foo');
