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
