Hi I am currently taking a course in control theory and are assigned a number of Matlabbased problems. One problem discusses the use of the 'series' function, used to cascade two systems in series. When I call this function in Octave, I get a warning that the function is obsolete, and to use 'sysmult' instead. I am sure that 'sysmult' is a fine function, but if the goal with Octave is Matlab compatibility (I've been told more than once that it is), why create a similar function with a different name? Why not improve the existing series function and keep the name?
