Description
            This implementation fixes major limitations known and reported for years.

It can be used in Scilab >=5.5.0 on Windows, Linux and Mac OS.

FEATURES ADDED W.R.T. SCILAB NATIVE VERSION
-------------------------------------------
 - in regular expression mode, all occurrences are replaced: fixes the bug 4276
 - a 'ro' flag is added to still enable replacing only once in regexp mode.
 - group replacement is supported: fixes the bug 9123
 - multiple Pattern/Replace pairs can be replaced: fixes the bug 6145
 - hypermatrix of text is accepted
 - examples run with strsubt() are added

These extensions are fully compatible with the existing strsubst().
A related SEP (Scilab Enhancement Proposal) has been posted here:
http://bugzilla.scilab.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4276#c9
in order to include them in the Scilab distribution.
