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