It would be nice if you explained what R and C were in your
documentation. Having a "minimize" for the command line is a great
idea.
I am curious, do you have any plans to implement bounded
minimization/maximization in your toolbox? It would be really nice if
you did. :) I do not think any one has implemented this for Octave.
It would be a nice thing to have.
