dataframe 1.1.0

Consider following file "afile":


if read there is an error:

d=dataframe("afile", "sep", ";");
Something went wrong while converting colum 4
Error was: cell2mat: wrong type elements or mixed cells, structs, and matrices
stopped in /home/andy/octave/dataframe-1.1.0/@dataframe/private/df_matassign.m at line 357
357:           keyboard;

if the int colum is removed so that "afile" reads


the first column isn't read:

> dataframe("afile", "sep", ";")
ans = dataframe with 1 rows and 3 columns
Src: afile
_1 string1 string2 string3
Nr    char    char    char
1       b   world    huhu
