Any chance for collaboration with PortableApps to create a Portable version of Octave?

It will increase exposure of Octave.

By the way, how come OpenBLAS isn't the default of Octave?

Thank You.

Hi Tatsuro,

Thank you, it seems to work (I think it should be on the FAQ pages or Wiki).

Any idea about where I can configure the path for tall settings folders?

Thank You.

I can answer for only 1.
For 1,
In bin folder, there are libblas.dll, libopenblas.dll, and librefblas.dll.
1. Rename libblas.dll to other name.

2. Copy libopenblas.dll and paste it in bin folder and then rename it as libblas.dll.

If you want use reference blas, do the above for librefblas.dll.
