Chapter 4, page 48, function complex
It seems that "re + im" should be "re + i*im".

Section 6.1.2, page 105
x is a 1x2 struct array, so the text "2-by-1" should be "1-by-2".

Section 6.1.4, page 110, function setfield
Section 12.2.1, page 224, function warning
Section 18.3, page 519, function qz
There are uppercase "XREF" prefix before the function names in the PDF
document only in these three places.  I 'grep' the files and find that only
these three places are "xref{XREFfuncname}" but all others are
"xref{XREFfuncname,,funcname}".  I'm not very familiar with Texinfo, so I'm
not sure whether this is a bug.
