Problems with Octave Forge packages should be reported to the Octave Forge mailing list, octave-dev@lists.sourceforge.net. A copy of this update to the bug report is being sent to that list so that they are aware of it. Please follow up there.

The author of the quaternion package passed away two years ago. 
It would be great if someone stepped forward to maintain this package.  One easy thing to do would be to convert the old demoquat.m file to use Octave's demo capabilities to embed the demos in the .m files of the package instead of having a separate demo file.  But to get you started, I'm attaching a patch that should allow the demoquat function to run.

Greetngs All

I sent this email to the author of the quaternion package and it bounced back does someone know how to fix the errors or recommend another package/commands/example I can use.  I'm in the process of learning to rotate x,y,z coordinates around a arbitrary axis to prevent gimbal lock and I'm
seeing which functions can make my life a little easier.

Here's the error message I sent but then the email bounced back

Greetings

I'm trying to use/test your quaternion m file you created for Octave but I'm running into some errors
when I install it as a root using the command below

pkg install /tmp/qopm_packages/quaternion-1.0.0.tar.gz
I get warning: function name `qderivmat' does not agree with function file name `/usr/share/octave/packages/3.2/quaternion-1.0.0/qderiv.m'

then When I run the demoquat command with option 1 I get
error: `prompt' undefined near line 48 column 7
error: called from:
error:   /usr/share/octave/packages/3.2/quaternion-1.0.0/demoquat.m at line 48, column 7

When I run the demoquat command with option 2 I get
Simple quaternion functions
error: `run_cmd' undefined near line 91 column 7
error: called from:
error:   /usr/share/octave/packages/3.2/quaternion-1.0.0/demoquat.m at line 91, column 7

When I run the demoquat command with option 2 I get
error: `prompt' undefined near line 124 column 7
error: called from:
error:   /usr/share/octave/packages/3.2/quaternion-1.0.0/demoquat.m at line 124, column 7

Just to let you know
I'm in the process of learning to rotate x,y,z coordinates around a arbitrary axis to prevent gimbal lock and I'm
seeing if your function can make my life a little easier.

aloha
