"I've always dreamt octave having good anoymous and nested function

support" - then switch to Perl -> PDL ( or OCaml (if you 
want type strictness and near "C" performance).


When Julia language was first discussed here, I suggested to write an Octave -> 
Julia translator, but I think it will NEVER be done for ideological (fanatic 
support of false/fake GPL freedom) reasons.

The rationale was to get the best of the two worlds - speed of Julia and 
packages available for Octave - in addition to what already exists for Julia.
