Aah, yes.  I looked only briefly and saw that the change was small and for Matlab Compatibility which is insufficient justification for putting it on the release branch at this late a date.  But if it is a regression then a change is warranted.  I grafted the change on to the stable (release) branch here (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/f8d443fe0de3).

Thanks, Rik.

Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned MATLAB compatibility as it is also a regression from previous Octave versions and a behavior you would expect, eg with the construct:


A comment in the code seems to refer to this:

## 2010-05-02   PBig    allow empty argument

Given this and the fact it's a small and 'safe' patch, any chance it could make it into the stable branch?

I made the change for Matlab compatability on the dev branch here (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/3797df921988).

Just noticed that:


should return without error for MATLAB compatibility.

Tiny patch attached that fixes it.

I used your patch as a template and added support for the "force" argument to close.  I also redid the docstring and applied stricter input validation.  See (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/7e0e8fb16201).  Closing report.

The attached file adds support of "force" option to close():
It also conforms to MATLAB behavior that figure handles can be used instead of keyword 'all' in conjunction with options "hidden" and "force".
