The remaining issue before closing this report is to transfer more of the texi documentation from odepkg in to either the individual m-files or to diffeq.txi.

An initial documentation of odeset otpions was pushed here:


More extensive documentation is available in the odepkg manual
and should probably be moved in the Octave interpreter manual.

One of the goals of Octave is to be a viable replacement for Matlab. However, odeset has 23 tunable parameters, but no explanation for any of them. Octave is not a good replacement if we require the use of Matlab documentation in order to understand how to code for Octave.
