Fixed in this cs:

MultipleDelimsAsOne code has never seen much testing and comparison with Matlab. After a bit of debugging I've just added a condition to the if stmt you indicated. All existing tests passed.

I'll have a look.

strread.m seems to behave properly w/o multipledelimsasone:

>> strread ('/home/foo/', '%s', 'delimiter', '/')
ans =
  [1,1] =
  [2,1] = home
  [3,1] = foo

but with it:

>> strread ('/home/foo/', '%s', 'delimiter', '/', 'MultipleDelimsAsOne', 1)
ans =
  [1,1] = home

OS -> Any

This command returns {'home'} instead of {'home','foo'}. The correct output is returned when the trailing delimiter is removed: '/home/foo'.

I could track down the problem in strread>split_by:

## In case of trailing delimiter, strip stray last empty word
  if (! isempty (out) && any (sep == text(end)))
    out(end) = [];

but I am not sure of what the right fix would be without breaking other situations.
