How does this function work? - echo, assert ...

2 views (last 30 days)
I found this solution in Cody but I have no idea what is going on.
function ans = remove_from_cell_array(x,to_remove)
! echo "function assert(~) " >./assert.m
end
Does anyone know how this function is working? This function is supposed to remove specific elements (specified by `to_remove`) from a cell array, `x`.

I guess this function is fooling the score calculator of Cody. I'm curious how it is fooling....

The function does none of the actual work needed. Instead it overrides the functions that are used to check that the solution works, so in each case the altered code says "No problem here!" when the scoring function goes to test the code.
