** If yes, what task did you choose? Please describe what part of it you especially want to focus on if you can already provide this information. ''Please also wiki-link the page for your elaborated proposal here.'' I really like the idea of getting to know how to make packages for octave and to link multiple types of code together. The link to the elaborated proposal is[[User:Josiah425:TISEAN_Package|here]].
I really like the idea of getting to know how to make packages for octave and to link multiple types of code together. PLEASE READ ELABORATED PROPOSAL which is available [[User:Josiah425:TISEAN_Package|here]]. Also my current PROGRESS is available on [https://bitbucket.org/josiah425/tisean| BitBucket].

I expect to spend about 6-7 weeks on the project. See my [[User:Josiah425:TISEAN_Package|elaborated proposal]] for a time estimate breakdown. Each topic can be considered a milestone.

Porting of the TISEAN package has a couple parts. First part is making the fortran and c programs accessible to Octave. Second part would be creating makefiles and putting all that code in a neat package.
 +
I have divided the first part into three subparts:
 +
# fortran ones that can be re-implemented easily in m-files (a good example of such a program is 'henon')
 +
# the fortran ones that need to be linked to oct files
 +
# c programs which also need to be linked to oct files.
 +
As linking fortran code to oct code is most diffucult of those three tasks I assume in my estimates that it will take me around 3 hours for each program, there are 28 in this category. Thus I assume it will take me about 2-3 to complete this task.
 +
Next there are the programs in the Tisean which can be ported to m-files easily. As this is not as difficult a task as porting fortran code to oct files I have alloted 2 hr for each program. I have put 5 programs in this category thus it should only take me about 2 days to complete this task
 +
Last but not least, I have 41 programs in C that need to ported to Oct files. As this task seems fairly straightforward I have allotted 2 for each program. There are 41 programs in this category, therefore this task should also take me 2-3 weeks.
 +
I plan to allot another 2 weeks for cleaning the code up thus bringing it to a grand total of about 7 weeks.
 +
My plan is to tackle the hardest task first, that is to work on the fortran programs that need to be linked to oct files.  
 +
There are 9 weeks designated for GSoC so I hope the extra room will allow me easily finish on time.
