Dear Philip, dear others,

I have very little C and no C++ experience. That's why I hoped to do it in 
octave itself.

The suggestion of going via python/perl/java seems to me not the way to go, 
since it implies a cross-dependence of any changes on the interpreter side 
combined with any future Octave changes.

My pragmatic approach at the moment is to grep/awk out the pieces that I want 
and write out temporary files that are easily readable inside octave. Those 
tools are less prone to fail due to version changes than interpreters like 

If I manage to solve my problem on the structure (as in my original post), then 
I'll post it here.

I'm sorry not to be able to contribute on the C++ level.
