Sub_title: Standard Numeric Software


GNU Octave is a comprehensive math suit. Most MATLAB scripts can run in Octave (or run with minor tweaking).

Octave comes as zipped file which includes:
gfortran-4.2.2.pet (Fortran compiler)
glpk-4.40-i486.pet (Linear Algebra Package)
gnuplot-4.2.5.pet (Famous gnuplot for graphics)


To start: type 'octave' in the terminal
Geany knows the highlight scheme for MATLAB/Octave (m files), so scripting with Puppy Linux is easy! Very Happy

I have tested those pet files on Puppy 4.3.0 full install, Puppy 4.3.1 frugal install and on Chempup (which is based on Puppy 4.2).
Maybe it is mandatory to have the Development package installed (devx_xxx.sfs), all my installations have it so I didn't check.

The basic functionality is there, but some advanced features might be missing because I failed to link octave to some top notch numeric libraries. Those deal mostly with speed optimisation.
If you are not going to do some heavy number crunching you should be fine.

Please report back if there are any problems,

Any further work done with OCTAVE, please?

I see that SAGE is available but OCTAVE appears to be more MATLAB compatible - meaning that many apps developed for MATLAB should work with OCTAVE.

I cannot find a description of SAGE compatibility with apps developed for MATLAB.

I am specifically interested in the ZMAP app for earthquake modeling at the moment.


Thanks! David

Hi edoc,

unfortunatly I have made no new octave package. But I tested my old one in Lupu and I found it working there.

You could also try the fine scilab package
although porting scripts from matlab to scilab is more work

You can use octave or matlab from inside sage, but sage itself is not compatible. It uses python based packages and the relevant packages for numerics would be "numpy", "scipy".

If you have earthquake scripts in matlab I would recommend you start with octave.

kind regards

In my previous version of my "Sage live" pupplet, I had included Octave -
