GNU Octave is a software for carious mathematical calculations, and the corresponding programming language. Octave was developed as an open source alternative to MATLAB and offers many comparable features. The language is so similar to that of MATLAB that many scripts will run under both programs.

No module needs to be loaded for Octave, only the command
needs to be entered. Bydefault, the command line interface is started. You can also start a graphical user interface with:
