You could:
(a) write code which does a runtime check and calls
either ss or ss2sys,
(b) write an install script that converts from ss2sys to
sys when installing in matlab (or vice versa),
(c) write ss for octave and add it to octave or
octave-forge, or
(d) write ss2sys for matlab and install it if needed.
Thanks, although I feel like I am back in some elections where I have
to pick the lesser of evils.
b) Is out; I see nothing but trouble
a) is fine; except I don't know how to do it. Maybe after I recieve
the GNU Octave book.
c) Is fine and benenficial; but I incur a maintenence responsibility
(and expose my coding for all to see). I am reminded of Knuth's
comments where he spent 1-2 years on a OS project, somebody asked him
to describe the result, he was so embarassed he took twice as long to
clean it up for presentation (as I recall).
d) Well... I would rather build up Octave, but it would build up
compatability. If anyone ever knew about it.
I will cheat for a while, and wait for the book.
