`I am trying to use Octave to learn Matlab, based on the online text
``"Numerical Computing with Matlab", at
``http://www.mathworks.com/moler/index_ncm.html. That text provides a
``"starter kit" of examples in a folder called "ncm". Many of the examples
``fail because they include lines consisting of "clf reset". Octave pukes on
``the lines, pointing to line 68 in its own clf.m file.
`
The simplest script I can think of to reproduce the error is:
figure(1);
clf reset;
fplot(@sin, [-10, 10]);

`Without the "clf reset;" line, the graph result is as expected; with it, I
``get an error and no graph.
`
The error report is:
error: `reset' undefined near line 68 column 5
error: called from:
error: C:\Octave\3.2.4_gcc-4.4.0\share\octave\3.2.4\m\plot\clf.m at
line 68, column 5
error: d:\UNM\MatlabTut\trial02.m at line 2, column 1
My operating environment is Windows7-64, running Octave 3.2.4.
So far, this is the only problem I've encountered, but I've barely started.

`Since I am a total newbie to Matlab/Octave, I'm sure this is something very
``fundamental that I have missed. Where should I be looking to see what that
``might be?
