| Strings are converted to ASCII values.

Strings functionality is not as complete in Octave as it is in MATLAB;
however there are some ways to get by.  I use 'toascii' and 'setstr'
convert strings to and from numerical values.  Numerical comparisons
can then be made.  It makes using strings a little extra work for
right now.  I do believe that John is planning to improve string
functionality in the near future.
