how do I use mathgl with octave?

  • Anonymous - 2012-03-23

    yeah, so it's probably a stupid question but forgive my ignorance :)
    so I downloaded mathgl-1.11.2.tar.gz file and extracted it. Went into the
    mathgl folder and did the following:
    ./configure --enable-octave
    make install
    and it seemed to have run fine (some warnings about PACKAGE being redined, but
    it went on anyways).
    so assuming I did everything right (a big assumptions for sure), how do I
    actually use it in octave?
    I tried a simple octave plot, but from what I can tell all I got was the
    normal gnuplot (which is sucky)

    First you need to install the mathgl package into octave. To do it just

    sudo octave

    and run in octave

    pkg install /usr/share/mathgl/octave/mathgl.tar.gz

    Any samples suitable for Python should work in Octave too (see http://mathgl.
