The problem has been fixed by recent changesets on the hg repo.

This bug report can be closed.

@Pascal: I have tried to reply to your private message but my email was rejected (your mailbox appears to be full). I am not a maintainer, and therefore cannot close this bug myself.

The problem solved by my patch currently occurs in Octave development version only.

Octave 3.6.4 + dataframe 0.9.1 is ok.

But the dataframe package will break as soon as Octave 3.8 is out, and the probleme exists both in 0.9.1 and in the latest hg revision of the package.

The reason is that regexp doesn't support the special character \b anymore.

Here is a patch against the latest hg revision, that makes @dataframe/display work (at least for simple numeric dataframes, I haven't tried any sophisticated feature yet).

Here is a patch for the first problem (warning in subsasgn.m).

There is something wrong in the dataframe package. I simply do the following :

octave:1> pkg load dataframe
octave:2> ver
GNU Octave Version 3.7.2+
GNU Octave License: GNU General Public License
Operating System: Linux 3.5.0-25-generic #38-Ubuntu SMP
Mon Feb 18 23:28:26 UTC 2013 i686
Package Name  | Version | Installation directory
   dataframe *|   0.9.1 | /home/bect/octave/dataframe-0.9.1


octave:3> x = dataframe(rand(10, 3));
warning: function name 'subasgn' does not agree with function file name '/home/bect/octave/dataframe-0.9.1/@dataframe/subsasgn.m'

and then

octave:4> display(x)
stopped in /home/bect/octave/dataframe-0.9.1/@dataframe/display.m at line 193
193:         keyboard
