## @deftypefnx {Function File} {@var{x} =} concat (@var{a}, @var{b}, @var{dim})
## Concatenate two matrices regardless of their type. Due to the implementation
## of the matrix concatenation in Octave being hard-coded for the types it
## knowns, user types can not use the matrix concatenation operator. Thus
## for the @emph{Galois} and @emph{Fixed Point} types, the in-built matrix
## concatenation functions will return a matrix value as their solution.
##
## This function allows these types to be concatenated. If called with a
## user type that is not known by this function, the in-built concatenate
## function is used.
##
## If @var{dim} is 1, then the matrices are concatenated, else if @var{dim}
## is 2, they are stacked.
