(yet another, but fast) Circulent Matrix

File Information
Description

CIRCULANT - Circulant Matrix

C = CIRCULANT(A) or CIRCULANT(A,1) returns the circulant matrix C based
on the vector A. C is a square matrix in which each row (or column) is
a formed by circularly shifting the preceeding row (or column) forward
by one element. The first row (or column) is given by the row- (or
column-)vector A. The last row (or column) will therefore be the input
in reversed order.

C = CIRCULANT(A,-1) applies a backward shift, returning a symmetric
matrix, so that C equals TRANSPOSE(C).

Examples:
circulant([2 3 5 7]) % forward shift
% -> 2 3 5 7
% 7 2 3 5
% 5 7 2 3
% 3 5 7 2

circulant([2 3 5 7], -1) % backward shift
% -> 2 3 5 7
% 3 5 7 2
% 5 7 2 3
% 7 2 3 5

circulant([2 3 5 7].') % column input
% -> 2 7 5 3
% 3 2 7 5
% 5 3 2 7
% 7 5 3 2

circulant([2 3 5 7].', -1) % column input, backward shift
% 2 3 5 7
% 3 5 7 2
% 5 7 2 3
% 7 2 3 5

The output has the same type as the input, and can e.g. be cell arrays:
circulant({'One','2','III'})
% -> 'One' '2' 'III'
% 'III' 'One' '2'
% '2' 'III' 'One'

Notes:
- This version is completely based on indexing and does not use loops,
repmat, hankel, toeplitz or bsxfun. It should therefore run pretty
fast on most Matlab versions.

MATLAB release MATLAB 7 (R14)
Other requirements should work on almost any matlab release

An update that resolves a bug in forward shifts has been submitted. Please wait for version 2.0.

Efficient, well written, clean code. Excellent help, examples. Appropriate error checks. It offers either form of circulant matrix, with the proper choice of default.
