Maybe you should report the problem, along with enough information to
allow someone to debug it. It's hard to fix problems when they
haven't been reported.

OK, I hear you, but just playing around, I can't get octave-2.9.8 to read
any image on my machine, regardless of whether they are .jpg, .tiff, etc. I
have tried both imread and loadimage, and neither seems to be working as
they have in the past. The test is simple - just try opening any .jpg file.
For imread, I get
error: `IMAGEPATH' undefined near line 41 column 23
error: evaluating argument list element number 1
error: evaluating assignment expression near line 41, column 8
error: called from `imread' in file
error: evaluating assignment expression near line 1, column 2
How do I define IMAGEPATH for octave-forge?
For loadimage, I get
error: load: /Users/jakoski/Codes/octave_test_files/Full-fire-later-bw.jpg:
inconsistent number of columns near line 2
error: load: unable to extract matrix size from file
error: called from `loadimage' in file
error: evaluating assignment expression near line 2, column 2
Which is the error that shoker_17 is reporting. I have read that same image
before with octave-2.1.73.
Is there an image reading test that is part of octave or octave-forge? Since
every part of octave-2.9.8 that I really need is working, I had assumed that
image reading was a work in progress, and would eventually get fixed. I want
to help, but for me to stand around saying that things just don't work is
not useful to anyone, especially when people are already aware of the
problems. I'm not sure which part of image reading falls onto octave turf
(loadimage?), and which is part of octave-forge (imread?), and why they both
To check things correctly, I should probably be working with the latest CVS
octave-forge. When I attempt to use the CVS instructions on the octave
repository web page, I get:
Joe-Koskis-Computer:~ jakoski$ cvs
Logging in to
cvs login: CVSROOT may only specify a positive, non-zero, integer port (not
cvs login: Perhaps you entered a relative pathname?
cvs login: warning: skipping invalid entry in password file at line 1
Do I need to export CVSROOT=something before I attempt login?
Once I get past that, I assume the modulename that I want is octave-forge.
