Recategorizing as applying to the fixed point package. Please note that the fixed point package in Octave was last maintained years ago, is probably no longer compatible with current versions of Octave, and may or may not have any salvageable code. If someone is interested in developing a fixed point data type for Octave, it may be just as easy to start from scratch with a new fixed point package.
