If you mean you were planning to take code from Matlab and translate
for use with Octave, then that would not be a good solution anyway,
because the code in Matlab is not freely available.  You also might
want to check your Matlab license agreement to see whether it is
allowed, even for personal use.

It would be good to have the additional functionality for Octave, but
if it is to be useful for everyone who uses Octave and not just you,
then it can't be in derived from something that is non-free.


Octave is freely available under the terms of the GNU GPL.
