Follow-up Comment #5, bug #41579 (project octave):
Thanks for asking "upstream".
In the mean time, I think on the Octave side this cannot be fixed to be
ML-'compatible' - at present, that is.
Octave's textscan.m is more or less line-oriented, in contrast to Matlab's
which acts more like a character-oriented binary file reader. Fiddling with
textscan.m's whitespace/delimiter/endofline defaults and with the way they're
processed won't help much I'm afraid, as the real issue is the way Octave's
textscan.m reads from file (i.e., before it even does the first analyses).
For some years now there have been plans to create a binary textscan(); JWE
has even made a rough skeleton (IIRC 2 or 3 years ago), but no one has had
time and priority yet to finish it.
