Good catch. I thought this was simple-enough to use the one line commit style. (https://wiki.octave.org/Commit_message_guidelines#One_line_examples).  Thanks for the help.

I checked in your change on stable and then merged to the default branch.  See http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/6cc5315cdf2f.

I made small changes to the wording to correspond to the guidelines for help text (https://wiki.octave.org/Help_text_style_guide).  In this instance, it was changing the future tense to the present tense.

I also changed the commit message to have a summary line and then a per-file change line.  Octave has guidelines for commit messages too!  See https://wiki.octave.org/Commit_message_guidelines.

It's a steep learning curve, but then becomes pretty natural.  Thanks for the changeset.

Marking as fixed and closing report.

noticed that the dsearchn function includes an optional output 'd' to return the distance to the nearest triangulation point , but it is not described at all in the docstring.  Added that description in the patch I'll attach once I get a bug #.
