Hi - I'm very new to Octave. I'm trying to run it from within Cygwin (freshly installed) on a 64 bit Windows 7 machine.
I installed Octave as well as octave-forge when installing Cygwin, using the Cywgin installer. This did not seem to give me the controls toolbox as I expected (at least as far as I can tell), as running commands like bode() would give me error messages about undefined functions.
octave:9> pkg install control-2.4.1.tar.gz
warning: creating installation directory /home/Michael/octave /bin/sh: make: command not found 'make' returned the following error: error: called from `pkg>configure_make' in file /usr/share/octave/3.6.2/m/pkg/pk g.m near line 1385, column 9
