NAME
       octave - A high-level interactive language for numerical computations.

SYNOPSIS
       octave [options]

OPTIONS
       The complete set of command-line options for octave is available by running the command

	   octave --help


DESCRIPTION
       Octave  is  a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations.  It pro-
       vides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numer-
       ically.

DOCUMENTATION
       The  primary documentation for Octave is written using Texinfo, the GNU documentation sys-
       tem, 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 command

	   octave:13> help -i

       while running Octave interactively, by using the GNU Emacs info mode, or by running stand-
       alone programs like info or xinfo.

BUGS
       The best way to submit a bug report for Octave is to use the command

	    octave:13> bug_report

       while running Octave interactively.  This will create a template bug report file and start
       an editor on that file.	Your message will be sent to the bug-octave mailing list once you
       are finished editing the template.

       If you are  unable  to  use  the  bug_report  command,  send  your  message  to	the  bug-
       octave@bevo.che.wisc.edu mailing list by some other means.  Please read the `Bugs' chapter
       in the Octave manual to find out how to submit a bug report that will  enable  the  Octave
       maintainers to fix the problem.
