There was a formatting issue with Andy's post, reproducing it below, fixed. I'm also marking this issue as "works for me" and closing it. If the issue persists in a newer Octave version, we can reopen this.


I have tested this with WinXP 32 + Octave 3.6.2 MinGW.

If I use MSys and

cd //
ans = \
CMD.EXE .. UNC-Pfade werden nicht unterstützt (UNC Path not supported)
error: 'test1' undefined near line ....

If I map the path \" to Z: using Windows Explorer I'm able to
use Z: inside Msys and on the octave prompt and execute scripts from this

Regards, Andy

If I move the file to a local drive it works.
