[Pkg-octave-devel] Bug#471273: Section 14.1.4: Rational Approximations

Hello Octave Maintainers,
I've noticed that in the octave documentation section 14.1.4 documented
a pair of functions used to generate rational approximations.
Section 14 concerns Input and Output and Sect 14.1 is for Basic Input
and Output, so it looked to me that Sect 14.1.4 had got misplaced
After raising the matter with the Debian octave maintainers, we figured
the Rational Approximations were probably in that Section because they
can be used as an option to the format() function, Sec 14.1.1.
I'm bringing the question to you then, to confirm if you really do want
to confine these functions to output only, or whether they have any
other broader uses that might warrant placing them in some other section
(e.g. Number Theory) ?
