Dear users,

I once wrote a serialize function
( to get a human readable string
representation of built in datatypes. To restore the var just call eval.
The intended purpose is to serialize objects for transmission over
byte-stream channels (serial, tcp...) or for storage in databases while
perserve the readability by humans(in contrast to the usage of
typecast(x, "uint8" for example).

Does anyone see an octave-forge package this might fit in?

btw: Do we have a function which checks a string for malicious code
before evaluating? For example wget, system, unlink and so on.

Any feedback and suggestions highly appreciated.
