Thanks, I agree this seems more versatile.

A related question: now that I load all these files, I can plot them in the loop using hold on, but I would rather save the filenames in some array of string, and plot outside the loop using this list. I'm not sure of the best way to handle this sort of things. Matlab provides some structures, cells, arrays, ... Octave probably does too, but which is more appropriate?

Thanks again,

I much prefer this:

   s = sprintf ("file%d.dat", i);
   load (s);

Using sprintf allows me to do more powerful things as this:

   s = sprintf ("file%03d.dat", i);

and then access files with names file001.dat, file002.dat, ..., file037.dat,
