|Description:||MATLAB-like language for computations (3.6.2-15)|
Octave provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language. Octave has extensive tools for solving common numerical linear algebra problems, finding the roots of nonlinear equations, integrating ordinary functions, manipulating polynomials, and integrating ordinary differential and differential-algebraic equations. It is easily extensible and customizable via user-defined functions written in Octave's own language, or using dynamically loaded modules written in C++, C, Fortran, or other languages.
This package contains shared libraries which are used by the Octave interpreter itself, as well as for packages that build against Octave, such as the various Octave Forge packages. Any package that either links to the libraries in octave-x11-shlibs or installs an extension should Depend on octave362-x11-shlibs and BuildDepend on octave362-x11-dev. In addition, it will need to BuildDepend on hdf5.8 and fftw3.
