There appears to be an error in the documentation of the strsplit function in
octave-3.8.0/doc/interpreter/octave.pdf.  The following two sentences about
the delimiter seem to contradict each other:

The delimiter, del may be a string, a scalar cell-string, or cell-string
array. del must be a cell-string array.

I understand that the specs for strsplit changed between octave-3.6.4 and
octave-3.8.0 (this actually broke my own code, which is what led me to look at
the documentation for strsplit).
