: Because OCTAVE cannot deal with Vectors of strings,
: I used length of string as a index of the vector
So far, string handling is a weak point. It needs to be improved, but
I haven't had the time to work on this yet.
: But abs can't be used to get ASCII codes
Abs will do what you want if you first set the variable
`implicit_str_to_num_ok' to be "true". The default value is "false"
because it seems to me that it should normally be an error to silently
convert strings to numbers.
: or setstr isn't supported.
The `setstr' function will be in 0.72.
