Matlab close emulation function


Scilab equivalent for Matlab close is different according to the current figure type (uicontrol or graphic one).

  • When current figure is a uicontrol one: Scilab equivalent for Matlab close is close

  • When current figure is a graphic one: Scilab equivalent for Matlab close is xdel or delete

  • In Scilab we do not get an error status.

The function mtlb_close([h]) is used by mfile2sci to replace close([h]) 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_close calls:

  • If h is a uicontrol figure mtlb_close(h) may be replaced by close(h)

  • If h is a graphic figure mtlb_close(h) may be replaced by delete(h)

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