FieldTrip ships with a function called "nearest" that resides in the utilities directory. the fixed point toolbox of matlab has a function of the same name that does something completely different. i would suggest renaming the function, adding the ft_ prefix to prevent problems.

Thanks Thomas, We'll look into it. Your suggestion sounds fair.
