Follow-up Comment #5, bug #33536 (project octave):
Yes I overlooked the literal "[" before "%s", sorry.
Precisely this situation (reading just one line of text) exposes a weakness of
the way I split leading literals from fields.
I have an alternative but at the time chose to not implement it as that one
might break in case of e.g., empty numeric fields next to a literal.
The underlying issue is the way Octave's strread finally reads files (after
internal preparation): columnwise, while ML probably does it line by line (and
AFAIU with binary code).
Octave's way is fast for an m-file but makes for lots of interesting gotchas
if we want to mimic all of ML's options.
I'll have a look - I need this fixed myself as well.
