I am sorry to answer late.

In MATLAB Identification Toolbox, it is used very often.
I could understand that sum([])=[] was better than sum([])=0.
It is not neccessary for me to get 0 as the result of sum([]).
ABS('string') and SETSTR(vector) is used to contain many system
parameters into one matrix in MATALB Toolboxes.
The type of a model is expressed in a string.
It is contained in a parameter matrix using ASCII codes.
I wanted to use many results of MATLAB in octave.
Are there many toolboxes which are still freeware and can be used
in octave?
