Note that this reference documentation is identical to the help that is displayed in MATLAB when you type “help ft_platform_supports”.

  FT_PLATFORM_SUPPORTS returns a boolean indicating whether the current platform
  supports a specific capability
 
  Use as
    status = ft_platform_supports(what)
  or
    status = ft_platform_supports('matlabversion', min_version, max_version)
 
  The following values are allowed for the 'what' parameter, which means means that
  the specific feature explained on the right is supported:
 
    'which-all'                     which(...,'all')
    'exists-in-private-directory'   exists(...) will look in the /private subdirectory to see if a file exists

    'int32_logical_operations'      bitand(a,b) with a, b of type int32
    'graphics_objects'              graphics sysem is object-oriented
    'libmx_c_interface'             libmx is supported through mex in the C-language (recent MATLAB versions only support C++)
    'images'                        all image processing functions in FieldTrip's external/images directory
