Matlab setstr emulation function


Matlab setstr and Scilab ascii behave differently in some particular cases:

  • With character string input: Matlab setstr returns a character string while Scilab ascii returns ASCII codes.

  • With double matrix input: Matlab setstr returns a character matrix having the same size as input while Scilab ascii returns a single character string

The function mtlb_setstr(A) is used by mfile2sci to replace setstr(A) when it was not possible to know what was the input 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_setstr calls:

  • If A is a character string or a character string matrix mtlb_setstr(A) may be replaced by A

  • If A is a double row vector mtlb_setstr(A) may be replaced by ascii(A)

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