SYNOPSIS

octave-cli [options]... [file]

DESCRIPTION

Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically. octave-cli has been compiled without any GUI support (Qt) which makes it smaller than the default octave executable, but also limits it to providing just the command line interface (CLI).

OPTIONS

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

octave-cli --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 http://bugs.octave.org. Before submitting a new item please read the instructions at http://www.octave.org/bugs.html on how to submit a useful report.

FILES

Upon startup Octave looks for four initialization files. Each file may contain any number of valid Octave commands.
octave-home/share/octave/site/m/startup/octaverc
  Site-wide initialization file which changes options for all users. octave-home is the directory where Octave was installed such as /usr/local.
octave-home/share/octave/version/m/startup/octaverc
  Site-wide initialization file for Octave version version.
~/.octaverc
  User’s personal initialization file.
.octaverc
