Rik, I think your point of comment #5 was that there is lots of documentation in the odepkg for "odeset" with examples [1] (line 1011 to 1821), that can really be used in the Octave manual [2] as well.

By the change of comment #6 I wished the users to at least know what is allowed for the individual parameters.  The other transformation requires some review time, but might be as easy as a copy & paste when looking at them.

So maybe leave it open for another two years as project for the development branch ;-)

Is this bug now complete or is there more to do?

The remaining issue before closing this report is to transfer more of the texi documentation from odepkg in to either the individual m-files or to diffeq.txi.

Jacopo proposed adding documentation from odepkg to diffeq.txi.

An initial documentation of odeset otpions was pushed here:


More extensive documentation is available in the odepkg manual
and should probably be moved in the Octave interpreter manual.

One of the goals of Octave is to be a viable replacement for Matlab.  However, odeset has 23 tunable parameters, but no explanation for any of them.  Octave is not a good replacement if we require the use of Matlab documentation in order to understand how to code for Octave.
