You are right. Feel free to oben a bug report at savannah, maybe immediately
suggesting a string that can be added to the help. However, I assume that
dassl and daspk will be deprecated in some future version since we are
moving to odeXY compatible solvers.

I think that ode5r from odepkg should be able to solve index3 problems since
its based on Radau 5 [1]. We hope to have a new release of odepkg quickly
after Octave 4.2. I will keep in mind to include such information in the

Regarding openModelica: yes, they do some clever tricks for higher index. As
far as I recall it's based on dummy derivatives [2]. Such stuff is easier
for modelica since it is in some sense a symbolic language. However, to my
best knowledge, it is not really well suited for big problems. So, as usual,
the best choice depends on what you want to do :)
