Matlab left division emulation function


Matlab and Scilab left division behave differently in some particular cases:

  • With character string operands: The \ operator can not be used into Scilab with character strings, while in Matlab it can. And in this case, result is transposed in a very strange way...

The function mtlb_l(A,B) is used by mfile2sci to replace A\B when it was not possible to know what were the operands 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_l calls:

  • If both A and B are not character strings mtlb_l(A,B) may be replaced by A\B.

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