[edit]

GNU Octave

https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/
High-level language for numerical computations

Octave is a high-level interpreted language that is specialized for numerical computations. It can be used for both linear and non-linear applications and it provides great support for visualizing results. Work may be performed both at the interactive command-line as well as via script files.

Documentation

A full description of Octave capabilities is available at http://octave.org/doc/interpreter

N.B. The Octave language is quite similar to Matlab so that most programs are easily portable. There is support for editing both in Emacs.

Notes

Donations to support the software can also be made at: https://my.fsf.org/donate/working-together/octave.
