It says all in the summary. Nothing fancy just a convenient tool for spitting vectors.

Excellent. Thank you.

This is a great function that I am looking for.
However, it would be more perfect if
1. the array can be unsorted.
2. the indices can be returned
For example, [s,i] = SplitVec([1 2 1 3 2 1])
s={[1 1 1],[2,2],[3]}
i={[1 3 6],[2,5],[4]}
I do not know if it is possible

SplitVec(a, @(v) [0; diff(v(1:end-1)).*diff(v(2:end))<0])

OK ... I add the 'decrease' and 'increase' functions by:
case {'increase'}
fun = @(v) diff(v(:,1))<0;
case {'decrease'}
fun = @(v) diff(v(:,1))>0;

But, how to add functions for 'positive' and 'negative' values vector spliting?

Will be possible to generalize this function to split vector on monotonical parts using ismonotinic function (http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/11637-ismonotonic)?

As you would expect of all of Bruno's submissions, it does exactly what it says it will do. Superb documentation.
