HELP a newbie - Weird problem |

Dear list members,
I worte to the list a few days ago about the problem I have with the
variable `whitespace_in_literal_matrix' and so far received no reply.
I really want to know why this happens, is it due to a problem in my
setup or a bug in octave. Here is a summary:
System:
-8Mb 486DX-33
-Linux 1.2.8 (slackware 2.3)
-Octave 1.1.1
Symptom:
-Start octave clean (no .octaverc), and type
Octave:1>conv(1,1)
Ans = 1
Octave:2>whitespace_in_literal_matrix = 'traditional';
Octave:3>conv(1,1)
Ans = 1
Good! no problem but if we ...
-Start octave clean, and type
Octave:1>whitespace_in_literal_matrix = 'traditional';
Octave:2>conv(1,1)
Parse error in line 59 of conv.m
.........
.........
The same error if I put the line ``whitespace_in_literal_matrix =
'traditional''' in a .octaverc. This line is suggested in the FAQ for
better Matlab combatibility. I don't believe I am the first one to
following suggestions in the FAQ and put the line in a .octaverc.
Somebody must have come across this problem and might even have a
solution. Please some kind soul enlighten me. Or just try the above
out and tell me if you have the same outcome.
Thanks
/Billy
