There was a long discussion on the choice of version control for Octave. The mercurial model was agreed upon by the developers.

Ok I'll give it a shot. Just curious - why use mercurial instead of svn?

David Bateman -

What do I do with that .ksh file?



It is the patch for scatter.m

The lines beginning with "-" need to be removed and then replaced by the lines beginning with "+".

The developers use a mercurial archive. If you have one ...

       hg import attachment-0001.ksh

If you don't have a mercurial archive, delete the portion preceding the line beginning with "diff --git ..." and apply it with the patch command.

If you don't know what any of this means, or don't want to bother, you can manually apply the changes to your __scatter__.m

To edit __scatter__.m, type "edit __scatter.m" at octave's command prompt.
