Actually, I have even simpler (but related) questions:
1) Does Octave officially support these "namespaces" (directories
starting with a "+") ?
I know that the functionality has been implemented to some extent for
some time now, but I failed to locate any mention of this in the Release
Notes or in the manual. Have I missed something ?
2) How are they called in Octave ?
The corresponding functionality in Matlab in called "package", but this
word refers to something entirely different in Octave...
