I have re-uploaded the octave-0.66 binary in sunsite.unc.edu:/pub/Linux/Incoming. The original upload was accidentally deleted by the system administrator at
sunsite last week. This new binary is smaller and runs faster than the previous
one because I remembered to switch on optimisation during compilation this
Briefly, OCTAVE is a freely distributable Matlab clone for doing numerical
analysis. It is written by John Eaton, and the full source code is available
by anonymous ftp from ftp.che.utexas.edu:/pub/octave . It is still in ALPHA
testing, but is already pretty good.
