Yes, look for whitespace_in_literal_matrix in the manual.

If you start Octave with --traditional, it this variable is set to
"traditional" so you get the Matlab-like behavior.

But the very existence of this variable is a problem, because unless
you are very careful, then the way your code works (or not) can depend
on the setting of a user preference.
