A demonstration of American Sign Language recognition by using a Point Pattern Matching Algorithm.
function y = isrgb1(x)
%ISRGB Return true for RGB image.
% FLAG = ISRGB(A) returns 1 if A is an RGB truecolor image and
% 0 otherwise.
% ISRGB uses these criteria to determine if A is an RGB image:
% - If A is of class double, all values must be in the range
% [0,1], and A must be M-by-N-by-3.
% - If A is of class uint8 or uint16, A must be M-by-N-by-3.
% Note that a four-dimensional array that contains multiple RGB
% images returns 0, not 1.
% Class Support
% A can be of class uint8, uint16, or double. If A is of
% class logical it is considered not to be RGB.
