Introduction to Octave

GNU Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It is a command line interface and solves linear and nonlinear problems numerically. Octave can be used to perform other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab.

Optional

Configuration Information

The following are some options that you may want to pass to the configure script:

--with-f77: Use f77 to compile Fortran subroutines.
--without-hdf5: Don't use HDF5 files.
--without-fftw: Use included fftpack instead of installed fftw.
--with-blas=<lib>: Use the ATLAS library found at <lib>.
--with-lapack=<lib>: Use the LAPACK library found at <lib>.
--enable-shared: Enables building the shared library. This requires shared ATLAS and LAPACK libraries if you're using them as well.

Non-Multilib

Compile the Octave package:

./configure --prefix=/usr --libexecdir=/usr/lib --enable-static \
--enable-shared &&
make

Install Octave:

make install

Install the Octave documentation. The files in the doc/refcard directory are two-page Octave command reference cards. The others are full reference manuals.

install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/octave-3.2.2/ &&
cp -v doc/refcard/*.{ps,pdf} /usr/share/doc/octave-3.2.2/ &&
cp -v doc/interpreter/*.{ps,pdf} /usr/share/doc/octave-3.2.2/ &&
cp -v doc/liboctave/*.{ps,pdf} /usr/share/doc/octave-3.2.2/

Multilib

32Bit

Compile the Octave package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD32}" ./configure --prefix=/usr --libexecdir=/usr/lib \
--enable-static --enable-shared &&
make

Install Octave:

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/octave{,-32}

N32

Compile the Octave package:

CC="gcc ${BUILDN32}" ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib32 \
--libexecdir=/usr/lib32 --enable-static --enable-shared &&
make

Install Octave:

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/octave{,-n32}

64Bit

Compile the Octave package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 \
--libexecdir=/usr/lib64 --enable-static --enable-shared &&
make

Install Octave:

make install &&
mv -v /usr/bin/octave{,-64} &&
ln -sfv multiarch_wrapper /usr/bin/octave

Install the Octave documentation. The files in the doc/refcard directory are two-page Octave command reference cards. The others are full reference manuals.

install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/octave-3.2.2/ &&
cp -v doc/refcard/*.{ps,pdf} /usr/share/doc/octave-3.2.2/ &&
cp -v doc/interpreter/*.{ps,pdf} /usr/share/doc/octave-3.2.2/ &&
cp -v doc/liboctave/*.{ps,pdf} /usr/share/doc/octave-3.2.2/
