MATLAB there is a popular interval arithmetic toolbox [ http:// www.ti3.tu-harburg. de/ rump/ intlab/ INTLAB] by Siegfried Rump. It had been free of charge for academic use in the past, but no longer is. Its origin dates back to 1999, so it is well tested and comprises a lot of functionality, especially for vector / matrix operations. INTLAB is compatible with GNU Octave since Version 9 [http://www. ti3. tuhh.de/rump/intlab/Octave/ octave.html]. I don't know if INTLAB is or will be compliant with IEEE 1788.
For C++ there is
an interval library [ https:// github. com/ nehmeier/ libieeep1788/ libIEEE1788] by Marco Nehmeier (member of IEEE P1788). It aims to be standard compliant with IEEE 1788 and is designed in a modular way, supporting several interval data types and different flavors of interval arithmetic.

For Java there is a library [https://java.net/projects/jinterval/ jinterval] by Dmitry Nadezhin (member of IEEE P1788). It aims to be standard compliant with IEEE 1788, but is not complete yet.
