Update of bug #57830 (project octave):

                  Status:             In Progress => Fixed                  
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #14:

I added a note to the NEWS file about all the changes from this bug report.

- Many functions in Octave can be called in a command form---no
parentheses for invocation and no return argument assignment---or in a
functional form---parentheses and '=' for assignment of return values.

    Command Form Example

    `mkdir new_directory`

    Function Form Example

    `status = mkdir ("new_directory")`

    Octave now handles errors that occur in a consistent manner.  If
    called in command form and there is a failure, an error is thrown
    and a message printed.  If called in functional form, no error or
    message is printed and the failure is communicated to the programmer
    via the output status variable.

    The following list of functions have been modified.

    * `copyfile`
    * `fcntl`
    * `fileattrib`
    * `kill`
    * `link`
    * `mkfifo`
    * `movefile`
    * `rename`
    * `rmdir`
    * `symlink`
    * `unlink`

Finally, marking this bug as fixed and closing this report.

If further examples of functions are found which need the same changes, please
file a new bug report about those.
