I know these are not the most exciting functions but could they be considered for inclusion in core? jwe's input would be useful for a decision about the +matlab namespace.

Hello Pantxo,

Yes, these files should go in scripts/+matlab/+lang. The +matlab namespace was also discussed on IRC and my understanding was that it was the way to go for compatibility (and keep +octave if and when there are some Octave-specific packages).

Do you have any idea how to handle the namespace here? Would we have to put those files in a +matlab/+lang package?

There has been a discussion about this recently:


Could you comment there?
