I have a curve parametrized using a parameter "T". 
The relation between "T" and the length of the curve "L" is expressed through an integral of some function "F", let us denote it with L = quad(F,x_i,x_f)
where x_i and x_f are lower and upper bounds for the integral.

If we have a given value for L, I would like to find such x_f that produces it. 

The problem can be easily solved using bisection, however, I was wondering whether there is a standard Matlab function that can be used.
