Hi Stephen,

I am not sure what you would like exactly for diagnostics, but if you
do what I said in my email, you should see cartprod and textread
disappear as you install io and linear-algebra respectively. Maybe the
default paths are getting messed with? I have somewhat inconsistent
results, though.  That said, I am going to give you a scatter shot
bunch of info.

Oh -- I am running a vanilla CURRENT 8.0, tracking current everything.

The following is from after installing both linear algebra and io.

wsprague@ wsprague (0,0,100%) $ find /usr/local/share/octave/ -iname '*cart*'
wsprague@ wsprague (0,0,100%) $ find /usr/local/share/octave/ -iname '*textr*'

wsprague@ wsprague (0,1,100%) $ ls /usr/local/share/octave/packages/io-1.0.9
append_save.m   csvwrite.m      doc-cache       packinfo
csvread.m       dlmwrite.m      fexist.m        xlsread.m

However, ... I am able to run textread, as

octave-3.2.4:2> help textread
`textread' is a function from the file

but in the above listing of io-1.0.9 from bash, I don't see that directory....

Let me know what else I can do, and thanks!
