Fwd: operator concept in Octave?

Siegfried has asked me to forward to the Octave mailing lists his
thoughts about operator overloading in Octave, apparently the only
obstacle for being able to contribute to Octave useful M**TLAB code of
his. His code can be found in his homepage listed below.

thank you very much for your quick answer. Too bad Octave does
support user-defined operators.

There are numerous applications, for example the derivative p'
for polynomial p, [L1,L2] to form lists, a*b for quaternions,
a+b for intervals, automatic differentiation and so forth.
All mentioned can easily be written in Matlab.

In fact I am asking for my Matlab interval toolbox INTLAB. It
defines real and complex intervals, automatic differentiation
for gradients and hessians, polynomials, a long arithmetic,
slopes and more.

It has some 4000 users in more than 40 countries and I was
asked whether it is also running in Octave. If at some time
you decide to support operators, please let me know, I would
be happy to use Octave since Matlab is getting increasingly

Perhaps you would like to post these thoughts to the Octave mailing
list? Perhaps you'll spur someone's interest to allow operator
overloading if you tell them that you could contribute useful code to
Octave if this feature were enabled.

Plese do so! The INTLAB code is on my homepage

Believe me, there are numerous applications and packages using
Matlab's operator concept. Handling is, as always, extremely simple.

Best wishes
