Update of bug #42022 (project octave):

                  Status:                    None => Ready For Test         


Follow-up Comment #4:

This is what I thought.  dlmread in Octave is also coded to expect numeric
input.  When you do not specify a delimiter, Octave has to search the file to
find one and it is looking for a pattern of "NUMBER<delimiter>".  The file in
this bug report is "TEXT,NUMBER" so Octave finds the end of line character
rather than a delimiter and concludes that there is only one column of data.

We could try relaxing the constraint to be "ANY_TEXT<delimiter>".  I don't
know what other effects that might have, although 'make check' still passes. 
I made that change here
http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/e7699adac1d0.  I'm going to mark
this report as Ready for Test, and will leave it open for a while since I'm
not certain that this won't introduce other subtle bugs later.
