The inner loop tries to calculate the sum over the absolute valus
between the difference of subsequent elements.

The result of i(j)-i(j+1) is clamped to 0 because of uint8 arithmetic
and I don't know if this is intentional... See this example

octave:76> uint8(5)- uint8(7)
ans = 0

> It does image row n - imagne row n+1
Not, it doesn't, see above

If you have problemx understanding that code I suggest adding outputs
and create a small MxNx3 matrix for testing:

For example:

img = uint8(randi(255, 2, 3, 2))
for i=img
   for j=1:rows(i)-1
      tmp = uint64(abs(i(j)-i(j+1)))

btw: if the output is really intentional, the hole code can be written as

c = sum(diff(flipdim(img, 1), 1, 1)(:))

which is *much* faster.
