The listed "interfacing with octave" is under "graphic output 
display program".  Some gnucap users are already using octave as 
a data analysis tool with gnucap.

The suggested project is to use octave to build a user-friendly 
extendable flexible graphic display for gnucap.  If you want to 
do this you should first be intimately familiar with octave in 
this kind of application.  You should be able to show us 
examples of how you have done this.  Otherwise, you could spend 
the whole summer learning the basics of octave, which is not 
what we want.  I see this as mostly programming in octave, very 
little C++.

If you want to program in C++, you might be better off with the 
other approach, writing a new graphic display program or graphic 
display plugin.  You need to learn GTK, but I think that should 
be easier than learning advanced octave if you don't already 
know it.

Incidentally ....  it was tempting to mention "gnuplot" here, 
but gnuplot is not affiliated with GNU, not distributed under 
GPL, and its license is not GPL compatible.  The fact that the 
licence is not GPL compatible means that we cannot use it here.
