So what is it that you want Octave to do here?

As for the quotes issue, why not use single quotes in octave?

Well, yes, of course that's what I'm doing usually. But I sometimes forget not to use double quotes (I'm human), and Octave does not tell me so. Now, if someone else uses my code with Matlab, he/she will get an error. So: is there a way to make Octave tell me not to use double quotes?

One idea I have about this is to add a feature in Octave that checks for double quotes, and produce a warning or an error. This feature would be turned off by default, but can be turned on by setting some flag. Or is there another (better) idea?
