IEEE floating point math is not fully supported by gcc 2.7.2 on the
DEC Alpha.  I believe this problem will be fixed with gcc 2.8.0 (the
next major release).  No, I don't know any better than anyone else
when that might be available.

:    Both fscanf(fnum, "%s") and fscanf(fnum, "%c") read the whole

Sorry, the documentation is lagging a bit behind.

The C-style I/O functions are now compatible with Matlab by default
(it seemed to be what people wanted).

If you want the old behavior, you can use

  fscanf (fnum, "%s", "C")


  fscanf (fnum, "%c", "C")
