I applied your patch, with a few minor style tweaks, here http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/ec31ca0a5812.

I followed it with a patch that changes the facecolor property from "interp" to "flat" based on the orientation of the color data vector since that is what Matlab does (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/3f8b3588a9f0).

Closing report.

According to the documentation (also tested in Matlab) this example is not supposed to work. fill expects at least 3 arguments before the option/value pairs. The function should thus send an error.

Attached is a patch that fixes the input checking and avoids the endless loop.

When using fill with edgecolor, as in

octave stalls. Same with e.g. "EdgeColo" (no error message).

This is with OpenGL. With gnuplot I get

error: _go_draw_axes_: A(I): index out of bounds; value 1 out of bound 0
