Exactly what you mean. The example I showed is in an Octave session.

Sorry but I am confused by this. I have just pulled the hg repository for Pytave and the README includes this text:

Pytave enables Python scripts to use existing m-files (Octave/Matlab
scripts) for numerical calculations. The Octave language interpreter is
embedded as a module to Python.

This does not appear to indicate that Pytave runs within Octave. Does the README just need to be updated?

The launchpad site for Pytave says more or less the same thing.

Please note that this project is in a highly alpha development state,
expect things to break and to find bugs, but I would appreciate testers
and contributors. I'm hesitant to mention it too much on the help list
because it's largely out of scope, but if you are comfortable cloning
the repository ( and building it
against a dev or 4.2 version of Octave, please do try it out.


If I can indeed run it within Octave I will gladly test it for you against 4.3.x+ and if it somehow allows me to call ITK and VTK python wrappers from within Octave, I will be your new best friend.
