Package: octave-nan
Version: 1.0.6-1
Severity: normal

The following patch is needed to respect the syntax of Octave 3.0 std:

 [y,n] = sumskipnan(center(x,DIM).^2,DIM);
-if nargin<2,
+if (nargin<2 || isempty(opt)),
         opt = 0;

Without it, one gets this when nan is loaded:

octave3.1> pkg load nan
octave3.1> std ([1;2], [])
ans =  NaN
octave3.1> statistics ([1;2])
