8.2.28 missing

Class: missing

Generic auto-converting missing value.

missing is a generic missing value that auto-converts to other types.

A missing array indicates a missing value, of no particular type. It auto- converts to other types when it is combined with them via concatenation or other array combination operations.

This class is currently EXPERIMENTAL. Use at your own risk.

Note: This class does not actually work for assignment. If you do this:

  x = 1:5
  x(3) = missing

It’s supposed to work, but I can’t figure out how to do this in a normal classdef object, because there doesn’t seem to be any function that’s implicitly called for type conversion in that assignment. Darn it.
