octave - A high-level interactive language for numerical computations. SYNOPSIS
octave [options]... [file] DESCRIPTION
Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solv- ing linear and nonlinear problems numerically. OPTIONS
The complete set of command-line options for octave is available by running the following command from the shell. octave --help DOCUMENTATION
The primary documentation for Octave is written using Texinfo, the GNU documentation system, which allows the same source files to be used to produce on-line and printed versions of the manual. You can read the on-line copy of the Octave documentation by issuing the following command from within octave. octave:1> doc The Info files may also be read with a stand-alone program such as info or xinfo. HTML, Postscript, or PDF versions of the documentation are installed on many systems as well. BUGS
The Octave project maintains a bug tracker at Before submitting a new item please read the instructions at on how to submit a useful report. FILES
Upon startup Octave looks for four initialization files. Each file may contain any number of valid Octave commands. octave-home/share/octave/site/m/startup/octaverc Site-wide initialization file which changes options for all users. octave-home is the directory where Octave was installed such as /usr/local. octave-home/share/octave/version/m/startup/octaverc Site-wide initialization file for Octave version version. ~/.octaverc User's personal initialization file. .octaverc Project-specific initialization file located in the current directory.
