Schwarz, Shoelson & Amphlett, Retailers Of Fine MATLAB Cloth Since 1987, proudly announce another piece of visionary software:

FPAT - A Fuzzy Pattern Detector

Did you ever listen to a toddler talk?
Easily your brain finds words amongst the noisy babble...
Did you ever think of faulty DNA?
Easily nature finds a way of just grabbing the relevant nucleotide patterns...

Now imagine a tainted string of bits - be characters or numbers - and you must find a certain pattern amongst all the noise!

FPAT is your solution!

Look at the complementary published M-file for a few examples.

This advertisement was so cool and truly different; it really caught my attention! And the function is even better, runs like a charm and extremely fast. Very useful for our lab! Great stuff, great company.
