I see. Also that functionality is probably not what 99.99% of the users
need. Anyway things work now (for strings of arbitrary type, matrices of
arbitrary type, vectors and scalars). I am happy to say that I got
matplotlib to plot from within octave, ohh well and octave can now run
embedded from matlab too. In case there is interest I can create a
snapshot of shogun that demonstrates this.

I had this crazy(?) idea of running python from octave which then again
embeds octave to do something. As this crashed (but first printed the
above warnings) I was under the impression that I could get this to run.

Hmmhh, I guess I should embed R too.

Thanks, that just works fine.
