k-clique algorithm as defined in the paper "Uncovering the overlapping community structure of complex networks in nature and society" - G. Palla, I. Derényi, I. Farkas, and T. Vicsek - Nature 435, 814–818 (2005)

[X,Y,Z] = k_clique(k,A)

k - clique size
A - adjacency matrix

X - detected communities
Y - all cliques (i.e. complete subgraphs that are not parts of larger complete subgraphs)
Z - k-clique matrix
