Joao, thanks very much for your cvs update (below) which has allowed me to
greatly extend the testing of the octave examples via your updated x??c.m
scripts and my changes to test_octave.sh.
For the usual psc device, everything looked good for the x??c.m examples
(excluding x14, x17, and x19 for obvious reasons) except for a minor problem
with x18 where some lines were missing from pages 6 and 8 of the plot.
I couldn't get very far with the png device because for some reason the
options -fam -fflen 2 which are recognized by the "p" series of examples
seem to be completely ignored by the x??c equivalent examples. (These
options are also used for the jpeg and xfig driver tests). Without familying
only the first page of each plot is shown for the png driver. Those looked
fine, and I will look at the remainder of the pages once Joao finds a fix
for the options problem.
Joao, I am most impressed with the wide range of examples the testing script
now exhibits for octave, and it motivates me more than ever to round out
the python and java demos. Competition is good....;-)
