#Is fprintf in Octave intrinsically slow? I use it to create datafiles
#as an interface to Plotmtv, and it seems to run very slow. For instance,
#a datafile of 190214 bytes took 433 seconds to write to disk
#(439 bytes/second). This strikes me as unexpectedly slow. (CPU is
#a 386-DX/25MHz).

I also have seen the same. I think the C style standard I/O library is pretty 
I have some .m files to read text files (which are not in octave format) using 
and I get real slow reading as compared to load() function.
