## inferior octave mode in emacs

 Does anyone have an inferior octave mode set up for emacs 22.1.1 on a windows system? I am able to use the octave editing mode just fine, however, when I try "M-x run-octave" emacs tells me that "no such file or directory, octave". I have both octave-inf.el and octave-inf.elc in C:\emacs-22.1\lisp\progmodes. I also have the line (autoload 'run-octave "octave-inf" nil t) added to my _emacs file in C:\emacs-22.1\bin. Anyone have some suggestions or hints for me? Thanks, Matt

## Re: inferior octave mode in emacs

 Please check whether octave is in your \$PATH so that emacs can find it. I have another (next level) problem: octave starts up and totally blocks emacs - and I have to kill emacs the hard way (Windows task manager) :-( Is there anybody having it run successfully on windows or is there some basic problem with input/output on this OS inhibiting it to work properly? Thanks, schi

## Re: inferior octave mode in emacs

 Well, I am not sure how to add octave to my path. I added the lines (setenv "PATH"         (concat (expand-file-name <>)                 path-separator (getenv "PATH"))) to my .emacs file but this is not right. I know almost nothing about lisp programming so I am not sure what to do. Please check whether octave is in your \$PATH so that emacs can find it.
