| i am experiencing problems when installing the gnuwin32 version
| of octave 2.0.13
| i followed the instructions and
| did a setup to the default directories.
| the binary now works.
| but it cannot find the m files.
| here is what i get for LOADPATH
| octave.exe:1> LOADPATH
| LOADPATH =
| additionally, during the installation
| xargs crashed once,
| but the installation continued.
That sounds like a bug. Can you please send a more detailed bug
report to [hidden email]? If it really is a problem
with xargs on gnu-win32 systems, and not a problem with the way the
Octave installation scripts call xargs, can you please submit a bug
report to the gnu-win32 project?
| final question:
| bin contained
| but NOT octave.exe
| is this the way of working.
| when i renamed octave.bin to octave.exe
| i could start it.
| what am i supposed to do about this?
The bin directory should have also contained a shell script called
`octave' that you can run from a bash shell window. If not, renaming
the binary should work fine as long as you installed Octave in the
default directory tree (i.e., /octave/...). Otherwise, some
environment variables will need to be set in order for Octave to run
