Octave/ Matlab

    Hello to all

    I downloaded Octave. I read that it will run matlab programs, but how do you do that?

    If you're talking about .m files (MATLAB scripts), there's a page in the FAQ that lists the major differences (found from a Google search for 'Octave MATLAB compatibility'):

    If you're talking about how to actually run your scripts (it's basically the same as in MATLAB), this page should help you out in that area (found from a Google search for 'running octave scripts').

    If you're talking about MATLAB toolboxes and other pre-compiled stuff, you may be SOL ('Short on' Luck)
