Octave - Full description

GNU Octave is a high-level interpreted language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides capabilities for the numerical solution of linear and nonlinear problems, and for performing other numerical experiments. It also provides extensive graphics capabilities for data visualization and manipulation. Octave is normally used through its interactive command line interface, but it can also be used to write non-interactive programs.

Octave 3.6.4 review by bk (Sep 22, 2013)
Short update. A good suggestion is available also at Stackoverflow

It reads:
I encountered the same problem. I solved it by this: create a shortcut to octave.exe, then right click->property-> change the "target" to something like:

C:Program FilesOctaveOctave3.6.*_gcc*.*.*binoctave.exe -i --line-editing
Then it won't exit if u have syntax errors. I don't understand the meaning of the parameters yet.

Octave 3.6.4 review by BK (Sep 22, 2013)
Octave comes in two versions - one compiled with Visual Studio and one with mingw.

The one with VS sort of works. No window manager, but apparently does not crash. the mingw version crashes. The bug apparently has been around since 3.6.4 was released for windows8.

Mind you - it may not be all installations of W8 that have the problem. Your milage may vary!

Nobody seems to fix it. Not fix has been suggested other than going back to an older version e.g. 3.4.x

Open software is wonderful and awfull. This is an example of wonderful sw that just is not maintained well enough currently.

But if you get to work it is GREAT!
