mtlb_int16 - Matlab int16 emulation function
Matlab and Scilab int16 behave differently in some particular cases:
The function mtlb_int16(A) is used by mfile2sci to replace int16(A) when it was not possible to know what was the input while porting Matlab code to Scilab. This function will determine the correct semantic at run time. If you want to have a more efficient code it is possible to replace mtlb_int16 calls:
Caution: mtlb_int16 has not to be used for hand coded functions.
