Counts the lines of source code in an M-file.

A line of source code is defined to be not a comment line, not a continuation of a previous line, and not an empty line.

The function line is included. SLOC returns the line count for the entire file, not for individual functions of a file.

If more than more statement is on the same line, that it treated as one line. For example, the line:

minx = 32; maxx = 100;

is one line of source code.
