summary

matrixfunt(hFunction,A,B,Dim)
```function Y = matrixfunt(hFunction,A,B,Dim)
% matrixfunt
%   Y = matrixfunt(hFunction,A,B,Dim)
%
%   Invokes hFunction on the columns of matrix A and rows of matrix B.
%   hFunction is a function handle that accepts two vectors.
%   hFunction is invoked aCols*bRows times.
%   Y is a cell matrix of size([aCols bRows]).
%   If Dim is 2, hFunction operates on the rows of matrix A and the columns of matrix B.
%
%   Example
%       A = [1 1 1; 2 2 2; 3 3 3]
%       Y = matrixfunt(@(X,Y)sum(X-Y),A,A);
%       Y = [3]    [0]    [-3]
%           [3]    [0]    [-3]
%           [3]    [0]    [-3]
%
%       Y = matrixfunt(@(X,Y)sum(X-Y),A,A,2);
%       Y = [-3]    [-3]    [-3]
%           [ 0]    [ 0]    [ 0]
%           [ 3]    [ 3]    [ 3]
