octave forge package windows 1.2.3 released

John Donoghue-3

 

 

Hi,

 

Version 1.2.3 of the windows package [1] has been released.

 

The Windows package provides a subset of the Matlab COM  interface to GNU octave for Windows users, allowing users to control applications via OLE automation services.

 

This release is a bugfix/documentation release, allowing the windows package to compile from octave 4.0.0, provide help documentation for the functions, and some initial tests for testing the package.

 

Enjoy!

 

JohnD

pkg install windows -forge

?

Thanks, Richard

ok, thanks, I only ask as I was under the impression the windows  
builds required the packages to be precompiled for them, e.g. using  
the mxe build system, and in general couldn't be installed this way (I  
could just try it, but don't have a windows machine and am asking more  
for the benefit of colleagues).

In general packages should install under the Windows version of Octave, just the same as they will under linux.

That is as long as they have any required dependencies available when being installed (which is handled by mxe-octave for the precompiled packages)

There are a few packages that need to be patched in order to compile, however they are slowly becoming fewer.
