Thank you! That was very helpful.

I posted on the Octave list that I thought it was great that Octave 3.0
had gotten it right while Matlab had gotten it wrong. Of course now
Matlab is saying that a char is 16 bits, breaking old code. Normal
people introduce a wchar type to handle 16 bit characters. I hope the
Octave people do something sensible, like provide "broken matlab mode"
but leave 'char' as 8 bits by default.

Dr. Tom
He has subdued monsters, he has solved enigmas. But he should also
redeem his monsters and enigmas; into heavenly children should he
transform them. Thus spoke Zarathustra.

The aim of this list is to facilitate the discussion between users of the FieldTrip  toolbox, to share experiences and to discuss new ideas for MEG and EEG analysis. See also and
