However, nested functions are not permitted with Paul's test infrastructure. I haven't looked at test.m yet to see, but how complicated would it be to include nested functions in test.m?

You should now be able to build test function blocks with the function name being the name of a shared variable which will last until the end of the test or until the next 'shared' block.

A further problem is the case

%!function x = a()
%! x = 2;
%!assert(a(),2);       # Test a test function with no input args

The first assert works, but as you used function handles to implement the nested functions, then "a()" works correctly but "a" gives the string value of the function handle rather than calling the function handle itself. This is compatiable behaviour. Without using function handles I see no other way to treat this other than adding the empty parenthesis in the perl script...
