I have installed Octave 3.0.0 on my Intel Mac OS 10.4.11. It seems to have configured itself to automatically run in the Terminal.app. This behavior is fine with me, however, whenever I launch the Terminal.app to run a shell (e.g. bash or tcsh) it automatically launches in Octave. The first line in the Terminal is:
imac-2006:~ louyclare$ exec '/Applications/Octave.app/Contents/Resources/bin/octave'
When I quit Octave, the Terminal.app window closes. Bringing up a new Terminal window simply re-launches Octave.
This behavior is unaffected by the Terminal Preferences settings. The setting for "When creating a new Terminal window:" has two radio button options:
1) Execute the default login shell using /usr/bin/login and
2) Execute this comand (specify complete path): I have /bin/bash in the area provided.
Does anybody know how I can run Octave in the Terminal.app and still launch Terminal.app in a shell?
