It will work as you expect if you set the variable

do_fortran_indexing = "true"

See the section on compatibility with Matlab in the FAQ. The FAQ

should be included in the source and binary distributions.

: Also x(:,ones(m,1)) for a column vector x is very useful.

This seems to work for me in version 1.1.1.

manual to see how to write a bug report so that the bug can be fixed.

: y(:) = x does not work either.

I'm not sure what the problem is here. What size are y and x? This

should work in 1.1.1 with do_fortran_indexing = "true" if y and x have

the same number of elements.

: And while we're at it: y(find(y<0)) = 0 with scalar right hand side

: will work in matlab 5.0 says mathworks, this is a good thing too.

This is probably a reasonable change to make. I've added to the list

of things to do in the PROJECTS file.

: Skip the "warning: empty matrix found in matrix list"-

: error message. I know what I'm doing.

You can turn this warning off by setting the variable

empty_list_elements_ok = "true"

In some future version, I intend to make it possible to disable or

enable all warnings on an individual basis.

: Skip the read-only property of I and J.

This is planned for 1.2.

: The old style rand crashes many programs. rand([3 4])

: means a 3 x 4 - matrix im matlab 4.x, not a 1 x 2 one.

: This will be changed in octave I think somebody said?

This has already been done for 1.2.

Thanks,
