Hi,
I have just started using Octave, having used Matlab for a
while. In Matlab I have often used inline functions, they
are very convenient for example when passing a function as
an argument.
For example, the following is a function returning the
square of the argument:
fun = inline('x^2','x');
One can then pass this function as an argument to another
function:
x = foo(fun,...);
So my question is, is there an equivalent construction in
Octave? If not, what is the best way to pass functions as
arguments?
Thanks,
Steffan
