Follow-up Comment #27, bug #57879 (project octave):

Yes, there is no reason to modify .hgignore, that part of this patch should be

I don't think we need to have an example in the NEWS file, just the
description of the change.

The rest of this looks pretty good. I think we need to do some rewording and
reformatting for the text, we can understand the difficulty if English is not
your first language.

I would like to see a test that shows a true return value with completely
unequal strings, for example

%!assert <*57879> (strncmp ("abc", "def", 0))

Note that you don't need to pass 'true' as the second argument to 'assert' if
the first argument is a logical test. For example

assert (1, 1)            ## test two arguments for equality
assert (1 == 1)          ## test a single expressing for truth
assert (1 == 1, true)    ## second argument isn't needed
