For the side note, Octave doesn't have a "latex" interpreter and thus does
not interpret "$" math environment. The only way to have LaTeX fonts and math typesetting (in printout only) is to use pdflatex(standalone) or epslatex formats, e.g.: title ('$Text (hello, 123) \alpha\$', "interpreter", "latex"); # "latex" is
the same as "none"
print -dpdflatexstandalone foo.tex
system "pdflatex foo.tex"
open foo.pdf
