	* Delete undefined identifiers when trying to eval them.

	* Add beginnings of builtin who and clear functions.

	* symtab.h (clear): New function.

	*, tree.h, parse.y: Implement matrix indexing with colon
	expressions, implement the magic colon operator for column and row

	* tree.h: Completely rework colon expressions.

Thu Jul 16 09:27:48 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* gnuplot-dist: Rename from gnuplot-3.2 so we're not tied to a
	version number.

Tue Jul 14 11:22:35 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Make argc/nargs/nargin work like C:
	the argument count is the number of command line arguments plus
	the function name.  This goes for `argument lists' for matrices as
	well as functions.  It seems a bit awkward but at it's consistent,
	and it's like C.  Hmm.  Maybe this is a bad choice...

	* utils.h: New files for utility functions.

Mon Jul 13 00:29:50 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.29.

	* tree_constant::tree_constant (matrix): Automatically
	convert 1x1 matrices to scalars.

	* parse.y lex.l: Fix up a bunch of stupid stuff and reduce the
	number of shift/reduce conflicts to 16 (all but one because of the
	optional separator garbage).

	* parse.y lex.l: Allow for assignments to lists of identifiers to
	be partially parsed.  This will still require some error checking
	in to ensure that the list is made up of identifiers only,
	since that's not enforced by the grammar (I don't see a way to do
	it, do you?)

Sun Jul 12 11:24:33 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* tree.h parse.y lex.l: Implement logical AND (symbol &),
	OR (symbol |), and not (symbol ~).  Also provide the C-style
	operators &&, ||, and !).

	* Matrix.h: Provide stupid element-wise logical
	operators for matrices.

	* Version 0.28.

	* parse.y lex.l tree.h: Implement C-style prefix and
	postfix increment and decrement operators (symbols ++ and --

	* parse.y lex.l tree.h: Implement break and continue.

	* tree.h: Assignment to matrix elements roughed out.

	* gnuplot/ Solution of linear equations via the lift
	division operator partially implemented.  Singular coefficient
	matrices aren't handled very well yet...

	* gnuplot-build/ Make this work to build gnuplot for
	generic X11/unix environments.
	* Remove -Wall from CFLAGS to avoid loads of warnings.
	* Use GNU readline instead of the one that comes with gnuplot.

	* gnuplot-build/*.diff: Various patches for various things.

Sat Jul 11 10:14:12 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.26

	* src/ Distribute,,
	* src/ (dist): Depend on and

	* gnuplot-build: New directory for patching and building gnuplot.
	This is apparenty required because the gnuplot license won't allow
	distrubution of modified versions, but will allow patches to be
	* gnuplot-build/ New file.

	* gnuplot-3.2: New directory.

	* readline: New directory from the bash-1.12 distribution, plus
	tilde.c from bash's lib/glob directory and xmalloc.c from bash's
	lib/malloc directory.
	* readline/, readline/doc/,
	readline/examples/ New files.

	* All files: Allow make to work from any directory, not
	just the top level one.

Fri Jul 10 22:20:56 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* SERVICE: Remove, since it seems too specific to GNU products.

Thu Jul  9 07:48:33 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.20.

	* Solution of ODEs with LSODE partially implemented.  It's
	possible to solve some simple equations.

	* tree.h (tree_constant): Add string constants and make
	them work more or less like string constants in Matlab (implicit
	conversion to ASCII numbers -- gag.  This isn't complete, and it
	it assumes that ASCII is the character set for the host

Tue Jul  7 07:28:35 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.19.

	* User defined function definitions and calls to them mostly work.
	Still need to implement multiple return values correctly.

Mon Jul  6 04:23:37 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.18.

	* lex.l parse.y tree.h: Begin implementation of
	user-defined functions.

Sun Jul  5 19:27:08 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.17.

	* lex.l: Replace SAVE_STRING macro with a function.

	* (builtin_document): New builtin function.
	(builtin_help): Make it work.

	* lex.l: More rules for gathering text.  These are still not quite
	as they should be, but they will work in most cases.  I think the
	flex generated scanner is either going to have to be reworked or
	replaced with a handemade version at some point (probably soon)...

	* tree.h: Add tree_word_list and tree_word_list_command
	classes for text functions.

Fri Jul  3 05:13:15 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.16.

	* builtins.h New files for builtin functions.
	Implement a few simple builtin functions.

	* tree.h: Add tree_builtin type for builtin functions.

	* tree.h: eval (args...) New virtual function.

Thu Jul  2 01:27:38 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.15.

	* symtab.h, Allow variables and functions to be tagged
	as read-only or read-write.

Wed Jul  1 15:54:36 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* and allow input to come from a file.

	* lex.l: to accept `#' as a comment character (allows one to
	use the `#!/bin/octave' style script hack).

	* doc: New directory containing skeleton stuff
	* SERVICE: New file from GCC.
	* BUGS: New file, now produced from doc/bugs.texi.
	* INSTALL: New file, now produced from doc/install.texi.

Sat Jun 27 15:52:37 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.14.

	* Fixed parser to eliminate reduce/reduce conflicts.

	* Fixed parser to recognize assignment to multiple identifiers
	(e.g., [E,V] = eig (A); ).

	* Quickie implementation of indexed array evaluation.  Works for
	scalar indices, but not range/array indices.

Fri Jun 26 04:23:12 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.12.

	* Hooks added for indexed array evaluation and assignment.
	* Colon expression implementation improved.
	* Implementation of for command eval() improved.

Thu Jun 25 00:28:12 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.11.

	* Colon expressions added.
	* For command added, but the implementation needs work.

Wed Jun 24 15:09:36 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.10.

	* Cheesy signal handler added to catch interrupts.

	* Matrix input works, even for nested matrices.  Some error
	checking is done while the matrix is evaluated to ensure that
	the number of rows and columns match up.

Mon Jun 22 00:21:49 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.9.

	* Command line matrix input partially implemented.  It's not yet
	possible to enter nested matrices, but it is possible to enter
	simple matrices (e.g. [1,2;a,b+c], where a, b, and c are scalars.

	* Version 0.8.

	* If commands added.

	* Version 0.7.

	* Command chains added.
	* Boolean operations added, tested for scalars.
	* While loop added, tested for simple commands.

Fri Jun 19 05:50:44 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.6.

	At this early stage, while a lot of changes are being made very
	quickly, ChangeLog entries will probably just list features added.

	* Variable assignment works for scalars.
	* Simple scalar expressions work.

Thu Jun 18 06:44:24 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.5.

	* src/version.h: For all the pre-alpha distributions, count
	versions as 0.1, etc. instead of 0.01.

	* Makefile: (dist) Automatically update version_string in

	* symtab.h, New files for symbol tables.

	* tree.h, New files for parse trees.

	* Lots of work unrecorded here.  Octave is now self-contained, the
	tree routines are being redesigned, etc.

Fri Mar 20 17:03:16 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.02.  Octave understands some simple matrix
	expressions, but it is not yet possible for matrix elements to
	be constructed from expressions.

Thu Mar 19 06:13:39 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.01.  Octave understands simple scalar expressions.
	Hey, Hey!  It is not yet self contained -- I'm still linking to
	the old libraries in /usr/local/c++-classes, and this isn't likely
	to change for a while.  (Other things are much more important than
	making the distribution work on other machines.  Sorry...)

Fri Feb 21 05:06:38 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* Version 0.00.  This includes the basic directory structure,
	makefiles, and a lot of the old Fortran source, including a way to
	make a libcruft.a.  Octave compiles and accepts input (with
	history and editing) but doesn't do much else.

Wed Feb 19 06:20:44 1992  John W. Eaton  (

	* ChangeLog: New file.
