AFAIK, ~/.octaverc is source'ed, so you can basically put any valid octave command in it.

Ah! So instead of setting the environment string, I just put this in the ~/.octaverc and get the same effect:


Thanks very much!

I have done a lot of searching but I come up relatively empty-handed.  I would have thought there would be a sample .octaverc somewhere out there, or some clear instruction on what sorts of things can go in the octaverc.

I want to set OCTAVE_HISTSIZE to some value.  I tried this in the ~/.octaverc file but I think it was not doing what I want:


This worked from the bash command line:

export OCTAVE_HISTSIZE=20000

But I would prefer not to have to include that in the ~/.bashrc because it is octave-specific.  I think it should go on ~/.octaverc, but I don't know how that is supposed to be done.  So what's the trick?  Thanks in advance.
