What the hell  do you want to do?
Octave is a matrix package, everything which cannot be done
using matrix-philosophy is poor or not there.
Especially if comes to strings. I would recommend if you want
to work on strings, to integrate perl into octave
and/or vice/versa.

> fprintf("string: "+f+"\n"); i get a ton of errors.

printf("string: +%s+\n",f); # should give no errors
