Re: Octave 2.1.19 available for ftp

  I have applied the 2.1.19 patch over the 2.1.18 patch and compilation ends
in :

./munge-texi \
  -d ../../src/DOCSTRINGS \
  -d ../../scripts/DOCSTRINGS < octave.txi > octave.texi.t
invalid doc file format
make: *** [octave.texi] Error 1

  I will get the full distribution, to see if it has to do with my patching 


ps : It sounds like a great idea to have all the doc in the source files. I 
like perl
 for that. I don't know texinfo, unfortunately.

pps: The error in make occurs after the executable octave has been produced. At 
 it says :
