GNU Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and non-linear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. Also may be used as a batch language.

High-level language primarily for numerical computations. Real and complex scalars and matrices, solution nonlinear algebraic equations, ordinary differential equations. Implemented in g++ and Fortran.

Initally conceived in 1988, but established in 1992, released 1993
