Is the intlinprog solver a native MATLAB solver ?

Kind of an odd question, but I have noticed that there is quite a variety of MILP solvers out there and I was wondering if the intlinprog solver was something MATLAB designed for themselves or if it was derived from a 3rd party solver?

Yes, "intlinprog" is part of the MATLAB Optimization Toolbox. An easy way to check whether a given function is part of MATLAB (or its related products) is to search for it on the documentation page on the MathWorks website. If it is a part of MATLAB, the ribbon just under the search field displays the particular toolbox.

I may not have worded my question as effectively as possible. I have Optimization Toolbox and use the intlinprog function, but I was curious if it was an inhouse solver design or 3rd party design for comparative purposes. Being a relatively recent release I haven't been able to find much in the way of performance comparisons to other widely used MILP solvers. I was hoping to find out if it was happened to be a repackaged 3rd party solver.
