  Mis-remembered latest version. It _is_ 2.1.57.

  I took the syntax from the docs; the sample script. I am still not sure
how to run octave from the command line while passing it the file containing
the 64-element array. I didn't try experimenting with the redirection
operator. Trudging up the learning curve, I am.

  In the meantime, octave-2.1.57 is slowly building (with numerous warnings)
on this box (Red Hat 7.3, 2.4.19 kernel, 328M RAM and a 333MHz PII cpu).
Later today I'll copy the tarball to my newer workstation and notebook and
build it there, too. They're much faster boxes running slackware.

  When it's done building I'll try the various suggestions and let you all
know the results.
