I have added some detailing under the preview subheading, that I felt was necessary so as to attract more user attention and make it more interactive.
[ GNU Octave] is a high-level interpreted language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides capabilities for the numerical solution of linear and nonlinear problems, and for performing other numerical experiments. It also provides extensive graphics capabilities for data visualization and manipulation. The program is named after Octave Levenspiel, a former professor of the principal author.GNU Octave is normally used through its interactive interface ([ CLI] and [ GUI]), but it can also be used to write non-interactive programs. The project was conceived around 1988 and at first it was intended to be a companion to a chemical reactor design course.The Octave language is an interpreted programming language. It is a structured programming language (similar to C programming language) and supports many common C standard library functions, and also certain UNIX system calls and functions.C and C++ code can be integrated into GNU Octave by creating oct files, or using the Matlab compatible MEX files. The GNU Octave language is quite similar to Matlab so that most programs are easily portable.
