Making octave standalone package in Windows.

Ole Jacob Hagen-3
Hi.

Have someone planned to make a binary version of Octave-2.1.60 +
octave-forge + cygwin + gnuplot for Windows?

I've looked at the install script that Andy Adler used, but it doesn't
seems that Cygwin is included here.....

I am planning to use cygwin compiler, but which compiler is best
suitable, when speed and performance are important?

Has anybody, made a standalone octave of 2.1.60 before me? Or at least a
windows binary with ND-array support? This is very crucial.


Cheers,

Ole J.

My script does some gymnastics to create a stand alone executable with
octave+octave-forge. This results in a much faster and smaller
windows executable.

It does depend on cygwin.

The general consensus is that gcc-3.2 is best for octave. Search
the mailing list for places to find it.

No, but this would be a useful contribution. You should also
try to build it with ATLAS. I'll try to help if you have
problems.

Hi, Andy.

Who built octave-2.1.50a-inst.exe at octave.sourceforge.net?
It has cygwin libraries included, and this could ease the install
procedure of both octave, cygwin, and gnuplot.

nsis installer has been used to make the executable.

Cheers,

That was done by Paul Kienzle based on work by me, based on
work by others.
