Reading text file

  A thing which is not so convenient in Octave is the inability of the
load command to read flat ascii files. Octave ascii files have this
4 line header which describes them. Its convenient in itself, but not
so the fact that Octave always needs this header. I would have liked to
see a MATLAB-like feature of reading in a flat ascii file and naming
the resulting variable after the file name. The same goes for SAVE,
perhaps through a -flat-ascii directive. This would make I/O with e.g.
Fortran programs much more simple, as well as compatible with MATLAB.
