I am finding a difference between how octave interprets a serial date to
a date string versus what LibreOffice/MS-Excel show:

A. LibreOffice / MS-Excel:
        '41908.402198066' -> 09/26/2014 09:39:10  (which is correct)
B. Octave:
        ans =
        114.0000     9.0000    27.0000     9.0000    39.0000     9.9129

(Tested in Octave 3.2.4 & 3.8.1 running in 64bit Ubuntu 12.04+)

I assume that 114 means 2014, but why do I get 27th instead of the
correct 26Sep2014?  What am I doing wrong or missing?  Any help would be
appreciated.  Thank you.

Regards, JMB
