I'm trying to convince a professor that Octave is the package
for him to use in his course, but he is comparing Octave to Matlab,
which I have never used, so I'll ask his question here.
I will definitely try to use Octave. And, as you say, the
price is right. As for MATLAB, there are interesting
toolboxes that extend its power, eg for signal processing,
control, neural networks, etc. Does Octave have extensions
like that? The most interesting one for 340 [the course in
question] would probably be the signal processing toolbox, and
secondly, some toolbox that supports simulations based on
Do these toolboxes exist for Octave? Are they freeware addons that
could be easily converted to Octave?
