Well, 'octave' can read/write data from/to pipes and files, and one
can also write custom C/C++ code to be linked with 'octave'.

Also, 'octave' can execute OS commands through 'system'.

I think the above features should be sufficient to control anything - 
unless we are talking about something pretty fast, so the required speed
is higher than the one provided by 'octave' interpreter.
