Difficulty adding a path with octaverc

John M. Trostel
I am trying to add a path to the default "LOADPATH" using the system-wide
octaverc file(s).

My system is linux 2.2.5 based intel running octave 2.0.14.  I have tried to
add an additional directory into the load path so that the epstk16 m files are
available on startup of octave.

I placed the following:

LOADPATH = ":/usr/local/share/octave/site/m//"

in both

/usr/local/share/octave/2.0.13/m/startup/octaverc
and
/usr/local/share/octave/site/m/startup/octaverc

If I manually invoke this command while in octave, it changes the LOADPATH and
all proceeds normally.  If I try to do it using octaverc, no change is effected
in the LOADPATH?

What am I doing wrong?

Never mind... I had a mixed up version conflict with parts of both 2.0.13 and
2.0.14 present.

When I cleaned up and reinstalled, the LOADPATH comes out right by adding

LOADPATH = ":/usr/share/octave/site/m//"

to

/usr/share/octave/site/m/startup/ocatverc

(as it should...)
