Dear Sir/Madam,
 
I am interested in joining Octave development, and my sourceForge account is ¡§hyu9910¡¨.
 
Since I am new to the Octave project, I currently do not have exact idea of what detailed component code to do.  I think I first need to know how to download the Octave source, to compile, and then how to use the functions.  On the other hand, currently I do have one question about Octave:
 
Some friends are trying to use Matlab to plot for portfolio analysis related.  Can such be achieved in Octave?
 
Thanks & look forward to your suggestions.
 
Best regards,
 
Hong Yu
