Test Suite

Test Status Code Input and Output
1   Pass
%% x = rand(10000, 1); z = rand(10000, 1); x = vertcat(x, z); tic y_correct = unique(x); t_unique = toc tic y_myunique = my_unique(x); t_myunique = toc assert(isequal(sort(my_unique(x)),y_correct) && t_unique > t_myunique)

t_unique = 0.0291 t_myunique = 1.2000e-05

2   Pass
%% x = rand(50000, 1); z = rand(50000, 1); x = vertcat(x, z); tic y_correct = unique(x); t_unique = toc tic y_my_unique = my_unique(x); t_my_unique = toc assert(isequal(sort(my_unique(x)),y_correct) && t_unique > t_my_unique)

t_unique = 0.0150 t_my_unique = 1.4000e-05

3   Pass
%% x = [1; 2; 3; 4; 2; 3; 4; 5;]; tic y_correct = unique(x); t_unique = toc tic y_my_unique = my_unique(x); t_my_unique = toc assert(isequal(sort(my_unique(x)),y_correct) && t_unique > t_my_unique)

t_unique = 2.0000e-04 t_my_unique = 9.0000e-06
