Update of bug #57181 (project octave):

                  Status:                    None => Confirmed              
                 Summary: missing function "readmatrix" (new in Matlab R2019a)
=> Support Matlab R2019a new data I/O functions "readmatrix/readvars/readcell"
and "writematrix/writecell".


Follow-up Comment #1:

Nice observation. I did not study the release notes carefully enough those

Basically, there came five new and seemingly useful functions with a cleaner
interface for specifying the file encoding and alike.

"readmatrix/readvars/readcell" and "writematrix/writecell"

The spreadsheet functionality of these functions is currently covered by the
io package, but the basic data import functionality should preferably go into
core Octave.  There might be a design decision necessary.  Personally, I don't
mind bringing the io package closer to core Octave and let Philip work there
=) As you said, great matrix processing, without proper import is incomplete.

Agree on your first point with extending the list by all five functions.

Agree on your second item as well.  This is not just a simple wrapper file
with a new name.
