mysql_check_attribute

PURPOSE ^

Checks to see whether an attribute exists in the attribute table and

SYNOPSIS ^

function attrib_id = mysql_check_attribute(attrib_tag, params)

DESCRIPTION ^

 Checks to see whether an attribute exists in the attribute table and
 optionally creates it if necessary.

 attrib_id = mysql_check_attribute(attrib_tag, params);
 
 attrib_tag is the attribute name to look for.  attrib_tag can be a cell array
 of strings in which case each string is checked as a tag, and a vector of
 attribute IDs is returned.

 params.conn_id - specify the mysql connection to use
 params.create - indicate whether attribute should be created if not
                  present [default: false]

 If create is true and the attribute is not found, the attribute is created.
 If multiple tags are searched and the creation parameter is set to false, any
 missing attributes are indicated by NaNs in the attribute ID vector.
