This small converter aims to accept octave style m-files and output matlab style m-files. Somewhat basic: # to %, ! to ~ and so on. A small script to convert directories containing octave m-files is included. Put directories of converted m-files at the _end_ of your matlab path.

See README for more information on how to use the files.

it seems line 12 of oct2ml.m should be changed as [temp1,filename_funname,temp2]=fileparts(filename); in matlab 2018
