[Octave-bug-tracker] [bug #49192] dec2bin function does not behave the same as Matlab

Update of bug #49192 (project octave):
Priority: 3 - Low => 5 - Normal
Item Group: WTF, Matlab?!? => Matlab Compatibility
Status: Wont Fix => None
Release: 4.2.0-rc2 => 4.0.2
Operating System: Any => Microsoft Windows
Follow-up Comment #3:
This seems like an odd choice by Matlab. According to their own
str = dec2bin(d,n) produces a binary representation with at least n bits.
So using n == 0 should imply that the result in binary will have 0 or more
digits. Given that the decimal number 0 can be represented in binary by the
decimal digit '0' it seems like the answer should have exactly one digit.
Just for fun, what does Matlab do for the following?
dec2bin (5, 0)
dec2bin (0, 3)
Octave's results are
octave:3> dec2bin (5, 0)
ans = 101
octave:4> dec2bin (0, 3)
ans = 000
which makes sense to me.
