What existing function can be used to divide two columns of a matrix by each other?

I am working with a Matlab code that uses an XML-file. The XML structure is built up of multiple lines in style of: Name of the output: "...", Name of the input: "...", function: "..." I can not use self constructed functions, only ones that are already available in the Matlab Toolbox. Adding self-constructed function to the setup would be very time consuming, even though they would be simple. As an input, I can only put one Matrix. If I want to hand over 2 arrays of length x, they will be converted to a x*2 matrix and the function of choice will be applied to the matrix. Now I want to divide numbers in column 1 of the matrix by the numbers in column 2. Is there any way this can be done with preexisting functions?

In R2016b, this will implicitly expand to work on matrices with compatible sizes

Thank you for your answer. The issue is that I can not give two inputs. I essentially need a function:
function X=divide(X)
that only takes one Input, X, which is a Matrix.
