See my class weblog:
http://www.eng.auburn.edu/users/hodelas/classes/C294999662/E1699166854/
index.html
for instructions on installing Octave without compiliing like we did 20
years ago.
I also have a (brief) tutorial on Octave in my class notes on that web
log (notes for courses ELEC 2020 and ELEC 2120) that you may wish to
look at.
There are others with similar resources on their web page, perhaps even
better than mine.

I would like to install Octave on my PC.... however, I don't want to
compile, link, load or perform any other system type operations, I
just want to install it with InstallShield or something similar.
From the website I'm getting the idea that Octave must be complied,
lilnked, etc., you know, stuff people did 20 years ago to get a
program up......
I had high hopes for Octave, and I think that a free version of
Matlab, or something similar, should be available to every
math/physics/engineering student, even in high school (they now use
graphing calculators....a true pain in the booty)....
So, all you would need to do is make Octave user friendly, like every
other piece of software available on the web.....
BUt noooo.......
I'm giving up on Octave I think........ I wanted to use it in
conjunction with a calculus book I'm writing.......that is, I wanted
readers of the book to have something like Matlab available... but
they will not be computer jocks ... (I am a computer jock, BTW,
Honeywell, Hughes, Lockeed, etc., but I am flummoxed trying to get
Octave up)......
Or, am I missing something ??????
Sorry for the harangue, especially if I am mistaken.....if I'm not
mistaken, let is serve as a wakeup call ?
