This will install (among others), the main executables of Octave <code>octave-gui</code> (linked with Qt, i.e., including the "qt" graphics toolkit and the GUI) and <code>octave-cli</code> (linked without Qt, i.e., only "fltk" and "gnuplot" graphics toolkits and no GUI). The Octave GUI can be started with <code>octave-gui --gui</code> from MSYS2's <code>bash</code> shell.
