to run octave-cli in existing window. I believe then that both .bat and .vbs could then be deprecated or immediately deleted.

Its not that simple – octave sets env paths for the octave when running pkg install, which is set in windows from the .bat file so cant just be removed

OK I didn't know Octave.bat had another purpose. I use it successfully to launch the cli.

‘start’ creates a new wndow befefault unless is told not to, so that is expected behavior for the start calls.


So the only one that could be changed to work differently would be octave-launcher --no-gui, if all ready running in a terminal

That would be great from my perspective!
