 I found a path.m program at

 http://www.tsc.uvigo.es/GTS/Octave/oct_archv1.html ,

 It is part of the contribution for Octave 1.x code, but appears to
 work with octave 2.0.11. Could this code become part of the octave
 distribution?
I just added the following function for 2.0.12. I wrote it some time
ago but apparently never put it in the distribution.
Thanks,
