Hello Doug


I am looking for numerical answers, I was led to believe that I needed this plugin to solve a simultaneous equation input with less effort than converting my equations to a matrix. Either way the problem of the plug in not installing remains for quite a few people as a quick google search reveals.


Kind regards

Hello everyone


I hope I am getting this right as this is my first email to the list and I have never used 1 of these things before. I downloaded Octave in the hope that it would help me solve simultaneous equations for an electrical engineering course I'm doing. I have no knowledge of the backend workings of Octave and no desire to have any knowledge as I'm trying to learn enough things at once as it is. I gather that in order to solve a simultaneous equation I need to install a symbols package.



Do you want a symbolic answer or a numerical answer?


If you just want to get the values if the currents in the circuit then you don't need the symbolic pkg.


Are you doing mesh analysis? 





I've downloaded the required package and attempted to install it as per instructions. This is the result I get:


>> cd C:

>> pkg install symbolic-2.5.0.tar.gz

Use of uninitialized value in lc at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8/ line 123.


I have searched for the error message online and found numerous discussions all of which are complete and utter double Dutch to me. Is there a practical way of resolving this?


Kind regards
