Sorry I misclassified the issue. Current categories make more sense.

[I will send an email to the help mailing list to see if someone knows a workaround for this in the meantime]

Would you please consider implementing a loadlibrary function compatible with Matlab?

I saw a couple of discussion bursts from 5-10 years ago about this. At that point the main problem seemed to be that Octave didn't support classes (https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/octave-maintainers/2013-11/msg00406.html), but this is not the case anymore.

A bit of context and explanation of my request:

I am trying to use Transplant (https://transplant.readthedocs.io/en/latest/) to call Octave from Python. I am aware about Oct2Py, which I have also started to use, but Transplant seems more comprehensive, powerful and actively maintained. Also, Oct2Py presents some issues (https://github.com/flathub/org.octave.Octave/issues/56)

According to main Transplant Dev, using Transplant should be quite straightforward if the loadlibrary function was available in Octave (https://github.com/bastibe/transplant/issues/74)
