# TISEAN package:Procedure

## Porting TISEAN

This section describes the process employed during porting TISEAN package into an Octave Package. This project was started as part of the Google Summer of Code 2015.

To aid in understanding the task there are some charts.

The first chart depicts what to do with each function in the function table. I mainly focuses on those functions that might already implemented in Octave.

The chart below depicts how to decide which type of port should be utilized.

Both of those charts can be combined into a large one that shows all of the work together.

## Table of functions

In reference to the TISEAN library alphabetical order of programs which is located here.

The choice whether a program exist in Octave is based only on comparing package/octave documentation with the TISEAN documentation. As of now I have not compared any code, nor checked if any sample data gives the same results from both functions (the octave ones and the TISEAN ones).

The legend to understand the table is as follows:

Green means the function is ported, tested or is not needed |

Red means the function was thought to have been similar but isn't |

Yellow means that the correlation between the TISEAN and Octave function needs to be verified |

No color means that nothing about this function has been determined |
