High level language for numerical computations

Nick Mead

Pros
  • Handles complex mathematical equations with ease
  • Works in conjunction with C++ modules and Matlab
Cons
  • Very complex for those unfamiliar with Matlab or Fortran

GNU Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations.

It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language.

The program wouldnt install correctly on brand new toshiba with win7.

Later another computer lenovo with win7 / Kraspersky antivirus kept giving warnings about its behavior comparing it to some PDM.Invader virus.

Another computer win Norton Antivirus gave warnings also.

Pros
  • Looks promising, easily downloaded, fast, slick.
Cons
  • Not production level quality, even for free software that deals with computation. Try the command line version Octave or swicth to "R", R's is free & comes with a mature GUI, not fancy but productive & reliable.
