Re: re-interpreting Octave output

Both of the following suggestions worked....
     Highlight,  then double-right-click in order to paste. 
     Highlight + <enter>,  then single-right-click in order to paste.  
Thanks so much for taking time for the advice!  

And the philosophical note about "initially a helpless user" is right on the money for my situation, as it has involved getting started simultaneously with octave, cygwin, and emacs, whence the "proper" aegis for each question could be far from clear.   

I must say that, overall, my brief experience with getting assistance with Octave has been much better than some evil experiences with paid support services such as at MS, Dell, etc., with eternal phone menus, call re-directions, lack of answers, etc.

Best regards to all,
Ted F.

Thanks, William!  The cygwin operations indeed get the mouse highlighting to work.  However, a right-click does nothing but make the highlighting disappear.  Evidently I'm doing something wrong.  Any suggestion?

More naively, a related question is this.  How do you select a part of the output for further use?  Is there a way to 
copy it to a clipboard?  The output from my octave (in cygwin), does not respond to mouse commands.

You might try enabling the mouse edit features for cygwin. Right click on the shortcut you use to open cygwin, select properties. Go to the options tab and check 'QuickEdit mode' and 'Insert mode'. Reopen cygwin, launch octave and see if you can now use the mouse to highlight (hold left mouse and drag) and paste (right-click while highlighted selection is highlighted).


Alternatively you could dump the results of your calculations to a file using fopen, fwrite, and fclose. Or save to an oct or mat binary file that can be read using the load command in octave.

Glad I could help, but I apologize for the original post error. To paste directions should read 'double right click' to paste.
