>From my minimal testing, it works at least as well (or as badly,
depending on your perspective ;-) as 2.0.5 under gnu-win32 b18.
Might want to pick up the hacked gnuplot as well if you want plotting
capabilities. Available from the same place mentioned above. I've now
included "less.exe" in the distribution to avoid pager related questions.
- info doesn't work, so "help -i" gets you nowhere.
- hacked gnuplot can't handle events sicne it's blocked waiting for
input from octave, so simple things like raising the window on top
by clicking on it doesn't work -- have to close the plot and
Not quite there:
- Due to a bug in bash in gnu-win32, I had to modifiy the
install-octave script so that you have to give it a "prefix"
argument and the script then installs it w/out asking
confirmation. eg., invoke install-octave as follows:
% ./install-octave /Programs/octave
Do not supply a DRIVE letter (eg., c:/Programs/octave) since that
causes some problems (sed in this case).
- Due to C++ front-end bugs in 970404 snapshot (one supplied with
b17.1), building octave is a non-trivial task under b18. I
basically built everything with b18 c++ except for the pieces
that use the stream classes, and built those with b17.1 c++.
