## Re: editing in octave 3.2.4

 Hello Sorry I cannot reproduce the error. When I write "edit" in the original directory when I start octave, notepad++ is successfully executed. I have tested octave-3.2.4 (mingw32) on windows 7 HomePremium 64 bit.

 In reply to this post by john Another option is to run octave from within Emacs. Goto http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/, slide a bit down up to "Obtaining Emacs", select the link, then look into the windows dir for a Windows native version. Another option is to install the version from Cygwin. Once emacs is launched, type the 'Esc' key, followed by x, then "run-octave" without quotes. You'll access a specific window directly interacting with octave. From there, you have all the bell and whistles of the Emacs editor, in particular the menu. Edit whatever file you like from there; Octave perform a check of the time it compiled each file with regard to their actual access time before launching any function. This way, recently modified files are re-compiled. HTH Pascal

 In reply to this post by john Hi, I downloaded emacs 23.3-bin -i386 zip.When I start there appear two windows a dos-like window and the windows for emac. I proceed as follows I edit a file in emacs en then copie and paste it in the windows of octave and run. Is this the correct manner So everything goes good. Thank you for your help. Kind regards
