The author of the code posts on his website the link to the asamin function, so I guess that he would be ok if there was also an octave version of it...

Among other conflicts with the GPL, there is the following statement:

  In general, I have retained all rights such as copyrights to these
  codes and files, but they may be freely used by any person or group
  independent of affiliations, e.g., independent of academic or
  commercial affiliation.

Huh?  Is there anyone who is allowed to freely use this code?  How many
of us are actually independent of academic or commercial affiliation?
Or am I completely misunderstanding the intent here?

Sounds like contradictory informations about these codes.

It seems like very old work, though. Perhaps the author has lost
interest in it and would be amenable to a relicensing or
clarification? Although using names like "Lester Ingher Research"
smacks of Wolframism, so that may not happen.
