Thanks for the response. I have a good experience of octave as well. I took
a Machine Learning class, assignments of which, I had to entirely do in

Could you specify a little task for me which would help you as well as me
to guage my preparedness for the Octave Interfacing project?

Are there any projects with GNUCap which involve learning GTK? I'd be more
than happy to learn something new and contribute towards GNUCap via a GTK
based project as well.

Also, could you provide me some pointers to learning GTK, assuming that I
am good at C++? I would go through the resources and later ask you for a
little task that could help you as well as me guage my preparedness for
this kind of project.
