Prototype MacPorts PortFile

Warning icon.svg
This page is outdated (June 2020). For more recent information, see Octave for macOS.

This prototype MacPorts portfile is intended to be used to produce a Octave App bundle for MacOS X. Before using it, please verify that the version number of Octave is correct. If a change is made to the file, it is recommended that the revision number be incremented to ensure that MacPorts recognizes that the port is outdated and in need of being upgraded.

This portfile deviates significantly from the Octave portfile provided by MacPorts. Specifically, this portfile has fltk-devel, epstool, pstoedit, and transfig as required dependencies. In addition, METIS has been removed, as it's license is not compatible with GPL. Since the transfig port ultimately includes xord-libx11 which triggers an error during the port mdmg the transfig port has also been removed.

description         a Matlab-like environment for numerical analysis
long_description    Octave provides a convenient command line interface \
                    for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, \
                    using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. \
                    It is easily extensible and customizable via \
                    user-defined functions or using dynamically loaded \
                    modules written in e.g. C++, C or Fortran.
