Octave 3.6.4 and 3.6.2 - urlread failing to load file
Sat Feb 23 16:19:00 GMT 2013
Under cygwin, trying to use the urlread function in octave causes the
octave:7> url = 'http://www.google.com';
octave:8> [s,success,message] = urlread(url)
error: /usr/lib/octave/3.6.4/oct/i686-pc-cygwin/urlwrite.oct: failed
to load: No such file or directory
I've checked that the file exists:
$ ls -l /usr/lib/octave/3.6.4/oct/i686-pc-cygwin/urlwrite.oct
-rwxr-xr-x 1 ???????? None 106510 Feb 23 08:38
It could be that urlwrite.oct is itself trying to load a file or
directory that doesn't exist, I suppose.
According to http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?37207 the problem doesn't
appear in Octave 3.6.1, but 3.6.2 is the oldest package I can find, so
I can't confirm this. Environment: I'm using Cygwin 1.7.17, Windows 7
SP1, more info available if needed. I've reproduced this with both
the 3.6.2 and 3.6.4 octave packages.
Are there any changes I can make to get this working? Or even just
find the 3.6.1 package?
Thanks for any help,
