Re: Octave on Windows compiled with MinGW

readline is a bit of a problem. The windows console has a builtin readline capability so it shouldn't be that bad in the short term. Long term I would recommend embedding octave in tcl/tk and writing a little IDE in tcl complete with readline-like capabilities.
Or maybe borrow the console from the R project.

I'm surprised kpathsearch isn't available since TeX was ported to DOS and Windows
ages ago.

fork is only used in a couple of places, and it shouldn't be too hard to replace them
with the equivalent windows calls.

How does Octave work? Is it fast enough? Did you compiled with with

Well... I managed to start octave and run some tests/benchmarks. I spend all my
results on an octave mailing-list few months ago. But, frankly, without
readline nor kpathsearch nor fork, it wasn't really usefull.
