Sorry. I did'nt read carefully the previous mail.

Thanks a lot. In fact, I would like one day to contribute to the octave code 
but I don't know where to begin to understand how it works. I have to check 
all the documentations refered on your SF site.

Of course. I know that. I participate already to several GPL programs. But I 
have not said "nobody answered me" in my PS. It was just to say that this 
"end" wish or question was not the first one. I had to precise my sentence. 
Sorry for that.

Bye and thanks for your GPL work,
