Thank you. I know this option. The reason of my question was that the
exchange of data with Matlab users becomes more difficult, when you
have to ask them to save the data in a special way. So, if octave
still wants to be matlab-compatible in the way that I can write programs
which can be used in octave as well as in matlab, then the
implementation of the new binary format seems to be necessary.
