Package: kmatplot
Version: 0.4-5

The interface to octave (version in testing: octave 2.1.57-1,
octave2.1 2.1.57-1) seems busted: it gives a horrible error message
upon invocation:

    $ octave
    GNU Octave, version 2.1.57 (i386-pc-linux-gnu).

    octave:1> kplot([1:100],sin([1:100]/10))
    error: API version api-v3 found in .oct file function `kplot'
	   does not match the running Octave (API version api-v8)
	   this can lead to incorrect results or other failures
	   you can fix this problem by recompiling this .oct file
    error: failed to install dld function `kplot'
    error: `kplot' undefined near line 1 column 1

    [[ at this point, nothing pops up on the screen; try again! ]]

    octave:1> kplot([1:100],sin([1:100]/10))
    error: octave_base_value::cell_value(): wrong type argument `matrix'
    error: octave_base_value::cell_value(): wrong type argument `matrix'

    [[ at this point, a kmatplot window pops up, but without data ]]

This is consistent with the hardwired octave version recommendation in
the debian/control file.  I then recompiled kmatplot on an up-to-date
testing system with the above version of octave installed.  It still
doesn't work, but doesn't give any gruesome error messages.

    octave:1> kplot([1:100],sin([1:100]/10))
    QFont::setRawMode(): Invalid XLFD: "6x13"
    ans = -1

    [[ kmatplot window pops up, but without data ]]

Sure would be nice if octave (and scilab but that's another kettle of
fish) integration worked with recent versions of octave.

kmatplot has been removed from Debian.  For more information, please
see <http://bugs.debian.org/285735>.  kmplot and labplot look like
reasonable alternatives.
