Sometimes, we might want to "overload" a MATLAB method to change the behaviour of MATLAB.
It is then hard to call the default function again. The function "builtin" can only execute built-in, non-m-file functions.
This submission aims to mimic builtin() for m-files shipped with the MATLAB installation.
[y1, ..., yn] = defaultFunc(func, x1, ..., xn)
Calls the first function "func", which is found in MATLAB's installation directory, even if you placed a function with the same name somewhere in your search path.
func may be a string or a function handle.
It will *not* work with built-in functions, i.e. those without an m-file.
Use builtin( func, x1, ..., xn) for that case.
A usecase for this function is shown in
which was the reason to create this submission.
