I tracked down a bug where octave has a function called 'copyfile' whichshells out to call 'cp -r' but in an environment without coreutils, orwhen in a script with PATH unset, it fails.
try it out with the following:touch fooguix environment --pure --ad-hoc octave-cli -- \ octave --eval 'copyfile("foo","bar");'
