Update of bug #54064 (project octave):

                  Status:               Need Info => In Progress            


Follow-up Comment #5:

I fixed the first issue of non-existent files here:


@Mike: according to the SO discussion I mentioned in comment #2, "open" is ran
whenever one double clicks a file in the file browser. "open" being a function
present in the interpreter, it should work both in CLI and GUI modes. Now what
"open" does when it finds e.g. data files (openvar? load? ...) may depend on
wether the GUI is running.

Indeed, using Qt's capabilities is probably the way to go (I'd bet it's
libmagic in the background anyway). The only disadvantage is the fact that
those classes where introduced in Qt 5.0.
