Hi Michael,

thank you once more for the help.

Even though you say that octaverc would be called it somehow does not
However, if I use "source" to execute that script, it outputs

This is what I see in the stand-alone Octave but I can not see if not using

usage of the Octave libraries.

There must be something wrong on your system. When I try the sample code from [1], it works as expected. I compiled the program using mkoctfile from the octave prompt. Then I copied the executable into the bin directory of my Octave-3.6.2 installation (such that it can find all DLL). When I execute it, I can see the few lines above (from the octaverc execution). So the expected behavior is that you don't need to source octaverc explicitly, as it's done automatically when you initialize the interpreter.

BTW, REPL stands for Read-Eval-Print-Loop. This is the interactive loop of typical command-line programs: you type a command, the program interprets it and prints the result.
