Hi Pooja,

Took a little time but I have pushed your contributions. See:

Apart from a little editing of NEWS hunk (due to intermediate contributions by me the NEWS file was changed too much) all your changesets applied flawlessly.
Kudos for neatly following Octave coding style.

Oopsie Pooja,

Wrong bug report, I meant omment #4 for patch #8377.
Apologies for the confusion.

Your contributions are next on my review list ...

Hi Felipe and Sandeep:

I've further converted your functions to Octave coding style, see attached patch.

Some remarks:

  • Where are the functions myassert.m and convert_to_cartesian.m ?
  • Please review licenses for get_J2.m (lacking altogether), get_ellipsoid.m, get_sinefun.m and geodetic2ned.m

Would you agree with GPL-3?

  • Furthermore there's one (the last) test in get_ellipsoid.m that seems to run only in Matlab?

I hope to be able to include these functions in the next mapping package release (within -say- 3 weeks or so).
Could you please review my attach patch fix the above issues and supply a new patch on top of mine before mid-April, please?

I'm having a look at them, together with some patches from patch #8377
May take some time (it's already over a year old, I know)

I have added some comments in the scripts(submitted as patch #8371 and #8372) for better readability.

These new function files also contain some simple tests. Thanks!

Added functions rad2km, sm2rad, sm2deg, nm2rad, nm2deg in the mapping package. Updated the INDEX and NEWS files too. I forgot to add the file for tracking and hence the two .diff files.
