### Test Suite

Test Status Code Input and Output
1   Pass
%% x = rand(10000, 1); z = rand(10000, 1); x = vertcat(x, z); tic y_correct = unique(x); t_unique = toc tic y_myunique = my_unique(x); t_myunique = toc assert(isequal(sort(my_unique(x)),y_correct) && t_unique > t_myunique)

t_unique = 0.0386 Elapsed time is 0.000776 seconds. t_myunique = 2.2000e-05 Elapsed time is 0.000288 seconds.

2   Pass
%% x = rand(50000, 1); z = rand(50000, 1); x = vertcat(x, z); tic y_correct = unique(x); t_unique = toc tic y_my_unique = my_unique(x); t_my_unique = toc assert(isequal(sort(my_unique(x)),y_correct) && t_unique > t_my_unique)

t_unique = 0.0206 Elapsed time is 0.000026 seconds. t_my_unique = 1.5000e-05 Elapsed time is 0.000064 seconds.

3   Pass
%% x = [1; 2; 3; 4; 2; 3; 4; 5;]; tic y_correct = unique(x); t_unique = toc tic y_my_unique = my_unique(x); t_my_unique = toc assert(isequal(sort(my_unique(x)),y_correct) && t_unique > t_my_unique)

t_unique = 1.9600e-04 Elapsed time is 0.000037 seconds. t_my_unique = 1.2000e-05 Elapsed time is 0.000050 seconds.
