Re: Please help me change the prompt

create a file .octaverc in your starting directory with the following line:

PS1 ("(your prompt here)");

for example, if you want your prompt to mimic the Matlab prompt, try PS1 (">> ");

The .octaverc file can be used for other customizations as well.

Hope it helps,

I just installed octave on Windows.  Whenever I enter something into the prompt, I get the correct response and then on a newline the following string: "octave-3.2.2.exe:1:C:\Octave\3.2.2_gcc-4.3.0\bin".  How do I stop this from printing to the screen every time I hit enter?  It's really annoying!
