GNU Octave 3 final released


Recommended Posts

GNU Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language.


For more information, see the page about Octave.


It's not something I would know how to use but other people here might want to check it out.


Windows and OS/X Binaries can be gotten here

If command lines were convienent, then you'd still be using DOS.

I use the command line for a lot of things. Searching for files, grep a bunch of files, piping thinks to AWK, the MySQL command line for all my database work, creating tables to testing select statements to populating some initial data, ./configure;make;make install, svn update, hg pull, so many things that I couldn't imagine my day without a command line.And when I'm on forced against my will under duress to use closed source operating systems, I often hit OS_KEY+R (opens run dialog) then I type cmd to launch a command line, then I type ipconfig or ping or tracert


If they ever drop that feature there will be some convenience lost.


I'm downloading Octave now to check out if it has a GUI at all. I do think they should change their intro text to something else.
