Dear all, for the integration of octave into a development environment I'd need some means to control octave and receive it's output. Ideally this would work by starting octave as sort of server and connect the development tool as client through a socket connection. Is such a mode
available for octave?

Try "attachtty," which even works over ssh.  Combined with
"rlwrap" or Emacs's `inferior-octave', it's quite convenient.

Or the octave-forge "engine" package..

Just had a look. Yes, that's how I'd do it in principle if octave doesn't allow connection through sockets. Only that I need the in/ output redirection from Java. So I guess I cannot use the engine library, but of course it will help me with a Java class for the same purpose.

However, I think I prefer patching the octave in/output function to allow communication through sockets. Has this never been done before? Then I'll give it a try.


We use code by
Brian Blais
available from
to communicate through sockets (see sopen.tar) .

We use it to use ImageJ together with octave.
In this case ImageJ is server and octave is client.
