The generalized inner product of two matrices combines two operators in the same manner as the classical inner product defined for the multiplication of two matrices. The number of rows of the second matrix must be equal the number of columns of the first matrix.

1 | ```
dotprod(x, y, g, f)
``` |

`x` |
A matrix of M rows by K columns. |

`y` |
A matrix of K rows by N columns. |

`g` |
Any operator: +, -, *, /, &, |, ==, <=, paste etc. |

`f` |
Any operator: +, -, *, /, &, |, ==, <=, paste etc. |

The result of the generalized inner product is returned.
