Thanks to both of you for the information. I will keep watching for a
new 2.9 binary version for Windows.

This is my binary of octave, with Sebastien's QT4 gui front-end. This
has certain limitations and known bugs. particulaly a scrambled error
message bug that in fact appears to be a bug in the string class of
3.3.x compiler under mingw/cingwin that might be fixed with a later
compiler. It is also missing atlas/lapack libraries, and so is slower
than it needs to be.. As I said, I'll do something about this, unless
someone else (who actually runs windows and cares) steps forward to
support a windows package of 2.9 and take this task off my hands..
