Interleave two vectors


Updated 18 Oct 2007

This function simply interleaves two vectors. The vectors can be of different lengths. If one vector is longer, the leftover elements are just appended to the output vector. This can be done in a couple of lines if the vector lengths are known, but this function handles most of the possibilities automatically, and should save a few minutes.

z = interleave([1 2 3 4], [5 6 7 8 9 10])
= 1 5 2 6 3 7 4 8 9 10

Followed John's suggestion to just return the other vector if one is empty instead of returning an error. Also, if both are empty, an empty vector is returned.
