## Re: MATLAB / Octave compatibility

 Well, I can't edit the page, but I don't think that these are correct (for Octave or Matlab):      * For a logical-and, Octave can use `&' or `&&'; Matlab requires `&'.      * For a logical-or, Octave can use `|' or `||'; Matlab requires `|'. The '&' and '|' have different meanings.  '&&' and '||' are logical operators, and '&' and '|' are vector operators in both matlab and octave I thought. Something that you can add is You can use indexes of functions and of other types making operations like a{1} = 1:3; a{1}(1) is valid in octave while in matlab you have to use something like b = a{1} b(1) for similar behavior in matlab.

## Re: MATLAB / Octave compatibility

 Hi Bill, The wiki allows for distributed maintenance.  You can edit the site by sending an email to [hidden email]. Below is the message I sent...   | To: [hidden email]   | Subject: Octave Wiki   |   | Hi,   |   | Please unblock me.  Below is what wiki.octave.org has displayed   | in my browser:   |   | Editing not allowed for 137.110.118.180 /   | dyn137-110-118-180.ucsd.edu: user, ip, or network is blocked.   |   | Thanks in advance. Please do the same so you can edit the page. Concerning &, &&, | and ||, you are probably right.  The items:   * For a logical-and, Octave can use `&' or `&&';     Matlab requires `&'. and   * For a logical-or, Octave can use `|' or `||';     Matlab requires `|'. were suggested to me from another user and I included them assuming they were true. Now, I don't intend to edit the wiki with things that I'm not 100% sure about; so please, asked to be unblocked and add your contributions.

## Re: MATLAB / Octave compatibility

 Unfortunately, there are two problems with that for me.  First, I can't send mail to sourceforge because the reject mail servers without reverse DNS (my home computer is my mail server).  Second, my IP is dynamic, so I can't give an IP that will work for more than a couple of days (and I don't really want to have to give them a new IP every time that I want to edit the wiki). So, while I realize that wikis are generally for distributed editing (I've even setup a few of my own and for others), I cannot edit this one now, and I don't feel like jumping through the hoops necessary to be able to edit it.

I agree with this. I used to edit the Wiki before it was restricted due to spam problems, but since then, I guess it wasn't ever worth it to me to get edit permission. Apparently I'm not the only one for whom that was a barrier to participation. I think it has unfortunately diminished the value of the wiki because it has reduced participation. Does anyone out there know what other wikis have done to encourage participation while keeping the undesirables out? It seems like some sort of a user/password system might be better than doing it by IP address--then it would be possible for a user to log in from different computers without getting every IP enabled individually. -Quentin ------------------------------------------------------------- Octave is freely available under the terms of the GNU GPL.

## Re: MATLAB / Octave compatibility

 Hi All, Quentin, I can add a class B IP, so that, as long as you connect to the wiki thru the same provider, it should be ok. Bill, I've added a class B IP for you, could you check out that you can edit?   I agree entirely that a wiki w/ a login would be better. But I don't see, how new users could do w/out sending a mail to at least one current wiki maintainer.   Cheers and thx for your contributions to the wiki,   Etienne On Sat, Jan 14, 2006 at 12:30:12AM -0600, Quentin Spencer wrote: # Bill Denney wrote: # # >Unfortunately, there are two problems with that for me.  First, I # >can't send mail to sourceforge because the reject mail servers without # >reverse DNS (my home computer is my mail server).  Second, my IP is # >dynamic, so I can't give an IP that will work for more than a couple # >of days (and I don't really want to have to give them a new IP every # >time that I want to edit the wiki). # > # >So, while I realize that wikis are generally for distributed editing # >(I've even setup a few of my own and for others), I cannot edit this # >one now, and I don't feel like jumping through the hoops necessary to # >be able to edit it. # # # I agree with this.
