=Level1= is intended for the page title
Octave also needs the equivalent of CPAN so that packages such as epstk which have been developed elsewhere can be archived. [ Agora Octave] is a fledgeling proposal to do that (talk to [[User:JordiGH|JordiGH]] about it). Before that is possible we need a packaging system which works for both Octave and Matlab (and maybe Scilab if you are feeling ambitious) without too much work on the either the developers or the users end, even for users working in a tool desert such as Windows. Feel free to expand on the definition of such a system on this page.
== Installing packages ==
You can find the list of packages on the [ octave-forge site]. To install a package, download the package file, and install it from the Octave prompt by typing
pkg install package_file_name.tar.gz
pkg install -forge package_name
