Looking at get_forge_pkg.m, line 72, it appears that setdiff(name,n) is called and n is not defined.

The 'else' clause at lines 70 thru 74 is meant to handle the situation where name is not known to forge. This should provide a hint for cases like

    pkg -forge install symbolicz

and should ask if you meant symbolic.

I do not have a complete fix, but, the regexp at line 66 should read

t=regexp (html, "<h3 class=""package_name"" id=""(\\w+)"">", "tokens");

due to changes in Trying to pick apart a web page to provide a hint is not reliable since the maintainer of the web page can not know where is may be parsed.

Since n is not defined at line 72, I don't know what was intended.

Any ideas?
