mtlb_sort

Matlab sort emulation function

Syntax

P = mtlb_sort(X)
P = mtlb_sort(X,dim[,mode])

Arguments

X

a scalar, vector, matrix of reals, booleans or a string

dim

a positive scalar integer

mode

a string ("ascend" or "descend")

Description

Matlab sort and Scilab gsort behave differently in some particular cases:

  • For a vector X the Matlab sort(X,'g','i') function call is equivalent to the Scilab gsort(X) function call.

  • The value 1 (resp. 2) of the Matlab dim is equivalent to the Scilab "r" flag (resp. "c").

  • The Matlab "ascend" (resp. "descend") mode is equivalent to the Scilab "i" (resp. "d") flag.

The function mtlb_sort(X[,dim[,mode]]) is used by mfile2sci to replace sort(X[,dim[,mode]]) 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_sort call by gsort call.

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