As you do have a running Octave 3.1.51+

So :
1) where is regexp?
you can find out by typing "which regexp" (from within Octave)

if you are running run-octave from the build directory this should return something like

which: `regexp' is the function from the file /Users/carlo/octave-build/src/regexp.oct

2) what is PCRE and where do I look to debug it?

gogling for PCRE points to which says:
"The PCRE library is a set of functions that implement regular expression pattern matching using the same syntax and semantics as Perl 5. PCRE has its own native API, as well as a set of wrapper functions that correspond to the POSIX regular expression API. The PCRE library is free, even for building commercial software."

I don't think you want to debug PCRE, you just want to check that your regexp.oct is correctly linked to libpcre

1) Do you have
/* Define if PCRE is available. */
#define HAVE_PCRE 1
in config.h ?


2) What does
ldd src/regexp.oct | grep -i pcre
(run from the shell) return ?


I downloaded and ./configure and make and make install pcre
Now I am starting over with a fresh install and try.
I will report the result later.

Thanks for your help
