= Running Octave and gnuplot from a Terminal =
These instructions assume you have already placed Octave and Gnuplot into the Applications folder.
Starting Octave from the command line requires one further step to inform bash (your shell) where the Octave binary is located. This is accomplished through the bash initialization file ~/.bashrc (the leading "." means it's normally invisible in the finder). To run Octave and gnuplot from a terminal, symbolic links will be used.
** {{Codeline|sudo touch /usr/local/bin/gnuplot}}
** {{Codeline|sudo ln -s /Applications/ /usr/local/bin/gnuplot}}
** {{Codeline|sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/gnuplot}}
** {{Codeline|sudo touch /usr/local/bin/octave}}
** {{Codeline|sudo ln -s /Applications/ /usr/local/bin/octave}}
** {{Codeline|sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/octave}}
* Test that everything is ok.
** In a Terminal window type the command below.
