function vecSpace replacing multiple functions : linspace(), logspace() and geomspace (inspired from python).
Also, it allows using vectors as inputs ( standard matlab functions linspace and logspace support scalars only).
%%function [points] = vecSpace(x1, x2, n, spaceType)
% This function works as alternative of functions linspace(), logspace() or (geomspace() from python).
% It is easier to remember only 1 function name. Function using original matlab functions, but also supports
% working with x1 and x2 as column vectors.
%
% x1 - is starting column vector of real numbers
% x2 - is ending column vector of real numbers
% n - is number of values - integer (there are 2 outer values (x1 and x2), and n-2 other generated values)
% spaceType - describe type of space
% supported values are:
% "lin" - linear space
% "geom" - geometric space
% "log" - logaritmic space/splitting (from 1e^x1 to 1e^x2)
% "manlog" - logaritmic space/splitting calculated manually (from x1 to x2)
% (it gives different solutions than original logspace() function in Matlab R2020b)
% points - output of function, which separate space <x1,x2> into n-1 intervals
