Fixed in this cset: https://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/b9d72a2dac8f.

Something like what you suggest is a possibility, but I get a failure when I run the BIST tests for gzip.

Working on a solution now.

Thanks Rik; files get unpacked separately:

One option would be to remove lines:

in gunzip/bunzip2 and allow unpack to have input argument dir equal to [], in which case one output directory per file would be used in the subsequent for-loop.

Confirmed. Matlab can accept a cell array of strings, but gunzip/bunzip2 in Octave are not documented to accept an array.

Can you test where Matlab places the destination files?

Try this

The files a.tar.gz and b.tar.gz are attached.

I want to know whether it unpacks a.tar.gz and b.tar.gz in to the first directory in the list ('./atst') or whether each is unpacked separately.

(file #45533, file #45534)

If gunzip/bunzip2 is called with a single argument consisting of a cell array of strings, an error occurs when determining the output directory:

When an output directory is not specified, the output files should be written to the same directory as the input files (which can vary from file to file).

(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
