In converting MATLAB code, I have never had a problem with end statements. I
just leave them alone, and the code works in octave. The endif, endfunction,
etc. is optional, but can be useful for debugging. Most of my functions
don't have an end statement associated with the function statement at all,
and they still work.

Finding the proper equivalents for some of the MATLAB ToolBox routines is
where I find the challenge to be.
