File search within MATLAB search path using wildcards.

Editor's Notes:

This file was a File Exchange Pick of the Week

whichx(inputstr)
function varargout = whichx(inputstr)
%WHICHX   file search within matlab search path using wildcards
%   For example, WHICHX *.m lists all the M-files in the matlab search paths.
%
%   D = WHICHX('*.m') returns the results in an M-by-1
%   structure with the fields: 
%       name  -- filename
%       date  -- modification date
%       bytes -- number of bytes allocated to the file
%       isdir -- 1 if name is a directory and 0 if not%
%       path  -- directory
%
%   See also  WHICH, DIR, MATLABPATH.
