I was baffled that size returns the produkt of dimensions if nargout > 1 and
nargout < ndims (A)
(and yes, the other software does the same)

For example:

[d1, d2] = size (ones (2, 3, 4))
d1 =  2
d2 =  12

[d1, d2, d3] = size (ones (2, 3, 4, 5, 6))
d1 =  2
d2 =  3
d3 =  120

I think this should be documented in "size", something like "If there are
multiple output arguments, but less than ndims (A), the last output argument
is the product of the remaining dimensions"

Perhaps someone with better english skills can add this.
