comment Is there a list of Octave functions mapped to the related Mathematica one?
@Mr.Wizard Then there are cases like this where both have specialized functions, yet use different definitions. In the end, I personally feel that there is no substitute for programming idiomatically in each system and that comes only with practice and reading the documentation.

comment Is there a list of Octave functions mapped to the related Mathematica one?
@Mr.Wizard I think that once you move past the basic single input-single output functions, you'll realize that there are a lot more differences — MATLAB has a single input-many outputs functionality that would be confusing to a Mathematica programmer. One of my early questions was about mimicking this (although, my question was more academic in intent and to populate the site during the private beta). There really is no equivalent to this in Mathematica (and for good reason) and you won't be able to draw parallels without causing more confusion.

comment Is there a list of Octave functions mapped to the related Mathematica one?
@Mr.Wizard I object because I think this is futile... Having used both MATLAB and Mathematica extensively, I'll second Szabolcs in saying that the two are sufficiently different in feel and functionality that compiling such a list would 1) mostly consist of trivial mappings like cos -> Cos 2) some more like ones, eye, etc. which might not be idiomatic in Mathematica. I think this will only encourage horrible programming practices in Mathematica. Also, why not Python + Mathematica, Java + Mathematica, and so on? I would probably suggest closing this question...

Actually, no. The functionality works fine. It just appears that it is not applied correctly to some functions.

@halirutan I think the functionality for the "Interpretable" option is not fully fleshed out... the default value is True, so it could just be the case that people forgot to set it to False.

comment Overloading ClearAll[] to take no arguments
@Mr.Wizard I don't get that error, but I agree that an evaluate should be thrown in. A simpler way: ClearAll@"`*"

comment Overloading ClearAll[] to take no arguments
In general, you might want to define it as ClearAll[] := ClearAll[$Context <> "*"]

comment What information is sent to Wolfram Research when loading or working with Mathematica?
I agree with acl as well: I think this should remain open. If anything, Wolfram Community might not be the place to ask this.
