I don't think Octave is designed for this (if it exists, that functionality
is not documented). If you just want to use the matrix operations
(multiply, invert, eigenvalues, etcetera), you might consider directly
calling the same (free) libraries that Octave uses to implement its
operations: BLAS and LAPACK. See www.netlib.org/lapack for more info.
Cordially,
