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 provides a convenient command line interface for solv- ing linear and nonlinear problems numerically. 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 command octave:13> help -i while running Octave interactively, by using the GNU Emacs info mode, or by running standalone 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. AUTHOR

NAME
octave-bug - report a bug in GNU Octave SYNOPSIS
octave-bug [-s subject] DESCRIPTION
octave-bug is a shell script to help the user compose and mail bug reports concerning Octave in a standard format. octave-bug is typically invoked by the Octave command bug_report which is intended to be called interactively from within Octave. This provides the best way to submit a bug report for Octave. It creates a template bug report file and starts an editor on that file. The bug report will be sent to the bug-octave mailing list once the editing has been completed (this assumes of course that your system can use email). However, the user could also call octave-bug outside of Octave. 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. If you are unable to use the bug_report command, send your message to the bug-octave mailing list, bug- octave@bevo.che.wisc.edu. OPTIONS
-s subject Specify a subject line for the bug report. Spaces in the subject must be quoted. ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
octave-bug uses the environment variables USER, EDITOR, and PAGER which can be used for customization. VERSION
