I'm lowering priority as there's a workaround (by manually adding tilde_expand).
Diving into the C++/Octave API is a bit too challenging for me ATM :-)

I'll have look to the "~" problem, could well be that some internal C++/Octave lookalike for tilde_expand is required somewhere.

As to the OV_ISCELL thing, that macro was added by Olaf, I'll cc him.

I just noticed that csv2cell does not work with paths containing a tilde character. With a file '~/temp/test.csv' written by csvwrite() I get an error if I pass the path containing a tilde to csv2cell:

... but not if I expand the tilde first:

I am using Octave 4.2.1 with io 2.4.8. Installation of newer versions of io fails ("csvexplode.cc:41:17: error: ‘const class octave_value’ has no member named ‘OV_ISCELL’ [...]"). I can file a separate bug about this if the behaviour is not expected in the transition to a new Octave release.
