Update of bug #52618 (project octave):

                  Status:                    None => Need Info              
                 Release:                   4.2.0 => other                  
                 Summary: A bug in the xlswrite.m (io-2.4.8) => [octave-forge]
A bug in the xlswrite.m (io-2.4.8)


Follow-up Comment #1:

Remarkable as in io-2.4.8 the very first statement of xlswrite.m after the
function statement on L.128 shows:

   120 ##
   121 ## @end deftypefn
   123 ## Author: Philip Nienhuis <prnienhuis at users.sf.net>
   124 ## Created: 2009-10-16
   126 function [ rstatus ] = xlswrite (filename, arr, arg3, arg4, arg5)
   128   rstatus = r_extnd = 0;

(see here:
so it is currently beyond me where "r_extnd undefined" error comes from.
Furthermore in the latest xlswrite.m the first reference to r_extnd is at
L.171, not L.175 as in your case.

This rather makes me suspicious that you have a stale xlswrite.m somewhere in
your path or in your working directory.
In the octave terminal, what does

which xlswrite


What you can do anyway is just download the proper file (use the URL above)
and replace your xlswrite function in the io package with that one. Should be
in <OCTAVE_HOME>/share/octave/packages/io-2.4.8 or something like that.
