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

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.
