NAME
       octave -	A high-level interactive language for numerical	computations.

SYNOPSIS
       octave [options]... [file]

DESCRIPTION
       Octave  is a high-level language, primarily intended for	numerical com-
       putations.  It provides a convenient command line interface for solving
       linear and nonlinear problems numerically.

OPTIONS
       The  complete  set  of  command-line options for	octave is available by
       running the following command from the shell.

	   octave --help

DOCUMENTATION
       The primary documentation for Octave is written using Texinfo, the  GNU
       documentation  system, which allows the same source files to be used to
       produce online and printed versions of the manual.

       You can read the	online copy of the Octave documentation	by issuing the
       following command from within octave.

	   octave:1> doc

       The Info	files may also be read with a stand-alone program such as info
       or xinfo.  HTML,	Postscript, or PDF versions of the  documentation  are
       installed on many systems as well.

BUGS
       The  Octave project maintains a bug tracker at https://bugs.octave.org.
       Before  submitting  a  new  item	 please	 read  the   instructions   at
       https://www.octave.org/bugs.html	on how to submit a useful report.

       contain any number of valid Octave commands.

       octave-home/share/octave/site/m/startup/octaverc
	      Site-wide	initialization file  which  changes  options  for  all

	      Site-wide	initialization file for	Octave version version.

       ~/.octaverc
