Hi,

`I seem to have a problem with the kolmogorov smirnov test (both the one
``sample and two sample test). As nobody else have posted any problems with
``this by now old routine, I guess it is a local problem and not a
``bug in Octave. That is why I am posting my question to this list.
`

`I use Fedora Core 2 with the latest updates. Octave is version 2.1.50
``(i686-pc-linux-gnu). If I for instance submit this in Octave (ng is a
``vector of data, m_ng is the mean and v_ng the variance of the data all
``defined):
`
[pval_ng, ks_ng] = kolmogorov_smirnov_test(ng, "normal", m_ng, v_ng)

`I get the following output (the line is in line 93 of my program as you
``can see):
`

`error: octave_base_value::char_matrix_value(): wrong type argument
```function handle'
`error: evaluating argument list element number 1
error: evaluating argument list element number 1
error: evaluating assignment expression near line 81, column 7
error: evaluating if command near line 69, column 3

`error: called from `kolmogorov_smirnov_test' in file
```/usr/share/octave/2.1.50/m/statistics/tests/kolmogorov_smirnov_test.m'
`error: near line 93 of file `/home/tr/data/p_stat.m'

`I have earlier used the routine without problems. But that was on a
``RedHat system before they changed it into the Fedora project. I realize
``that it refers to the kolmogorov smirnov file in the
``/usr/share/octave/2.1.50/m/statistics/tests/ directory. I have been
``looking at this file. But I see no errors in the lines referred to. And I
``would be surprised if the error was there. Did anybody else have a
``similar problem? I would be greatful for any ideas of how to
``get by this problem.
`
thanks,
Toke
