Displays a dialog box for the user to fill in, and returns the filename and path strings. Multiple choices are possible, as well as directory names. Both returned values are then char or cellstr. This function behaves exactly as uigetfile, but in multiple and dirextory mode. The file selector also provides extended functionalities (file edit, sorting, tool tips, filters, wildcards, directory history, ...)

Use strcat(pathname, filesep, filename) to obtain full file name.

options may be: 'Location', [x y]
or [x y]
and 'MultiSelect', 'on'|'off'
