BUILTIN Evaulate Builtin Function

Section: FreeMat Functions


The builtin function evaluates a built in function with the given name, bypassing any overloaded functions. The syntax of builtin is
  [y1,y2,...,yn] = builtin(fname,x1,x2,...,xm)

where fname is the name of the function to call. Apart from the fact that fname must be a string, and that builtin always calls the non-overloaded method, it operates exactly like feval. Note that unlike MATLAB, builtin does not force evaluation to an actual compiled function. It simply subverts the activation of overloaded method calls.
