Andy, relax.  Everyone learns sometimes, and basic questions
always seem silly to the experienced.  Also, you didn't even
try to help after the vent.

If you dislike answering common questions, write a FAQ.  That
way, you only answer the same question once.  Then
just reply with a link, rather than blasting the hell
out of newbies.  You are not superior.

To Miguel, sorry, I can't help too much.  The path that is
> /usr/share/octave/2.1.36/m/strings/findstr.m: No such file or directory
is a UNIX style pathname, not Windows.  I'm not sure if the path conversion
takes place in the compiler, or where.  I believe that octave
gets compiled for Windows with the Cygnus toolset, which emulates
a UNIX-like environment in Windows.
