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.

This wiki is intended to supplement the GNU Octave documentation. Before adding content, please check that it is not already part of, or belongs in, the documentation.

GNU Octave FAQ

The FAQ is a list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) for GNU Octave users and a good place to start.

Answers to questions regarding what is Octave, licensing, new features, documentation, installation, coding, contributing to Octave, and more, are found there.
