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. GNU Octave is normally used through its interactive interface (CLI and GUI), but it can also be used to write non-interactive programs. The GNU Octave language is quite similar to Matlab so that most programs are easily portable.

Installing[edit]

Installation instructions for:

Get installers and sources from https://www.octave.org/download and information how to build Octave using a separate toolchain (custom built gcc version).

Info icon.svg
GNU Octave 5.1.0 is the current stable release.

Are you using an old version of Octave? Check the Release History page to see how old it is.

News[edit]

  • February 23, 2019 GNU Octave 5.1.0 has been released (see above)!

Getting help[edit]
