Sometimes, people call ft_XXX like this: ft_blabla([], data). If in the long run, the assignment of default cfg options will be done by ft_getopt, an output should be generated, also when the input 'obj' == []

I added the following lines in ft_getopt (>line 63): elseif isempty(opt) % input can be an empty variable (e.g. when calling a ft-function with % ft_XXX([], data) val = default;

can you please check that this is consistent with the mex-file implementation of ft_getopt? it means that you have to look at the c-code... another change of learning mex programming ;-)
