FENICS MATLAB FEniCS project FEA solver CLI interface.

[ PROB ] = FENICS( PROB, VARARGIN ) Export, solves, and/or imports the problem described by the finite element struct PROB using the FEniCS solver. The fea problem struct is returned with updated SOL.U and SOL.T fields if applicable. Accepts the following property/value pairs.
