When I first started using Octave about 1 year ago, I

apparently AquaTerm is no longer included and the
default shell is bash instead of tcsh. I'm close to
saying that if you want to use Octave *and
Octave-forge*, don't use a Mac.

I've been using octave on a mac for 6 years or more now.
I'm currently running Octave on both G3 and G4 machines, some
running Jaguar (10.2.x) and one running Panther (10.3.x).
The basic machine configurations are:

- fink install of octave, Xfree-86, gnuplot, and Aquaterm

- Apple X11
- fink install of octave, gnuplot, and Aquaterm -or-
- CVS install of octave (requires a couple tweaks),
   fink install of gnuplot and aquaterm.

I'm able to use both Aquaterm and gnuplot on both OS's; my
preference (due habits acquired due to using octave to mac OS X ) is

I've not tried to install octave without gnuplot/X11. That may be a part
of the problem (others will have to speak to that).
