There are 2 options for installing the mingw32 build of octave for MS Windows: 1. The installer: Octave3.4.3_gcc4.5.2-install.exe - You may change the default install directory. Do not choose one with spaces, it will cause problems for Octave's pkg function. - It does not include the octaveforge packages. Use the pkgs 7z archive if these are required. - It includes the main Octave archive and the libreadline archive (discussed below). - The content is the same as the 7z archives. More detail of these is below. 2. 7z archives for manual installation. The installer may have problems for some locales, in which case the archives will be useful. a. Octave3.4.3_gcc4.5.2_20111025.7z (MD5:5AA004D933E000E762AE2AE95573ACBD) - is a 7z archive which includes a directory tree of all the binaries and libraries required for a complete octave installation (excluding octaveforge packages). b. libreadline.dll.a.7z (MD5:975F8A8B4B5255E079F1E0E4E8530815) - additional library file (will be added to main 7z on next release) These archives include: octave-3.4.3 including PDF and html documentation (built using Tatsuro Matsuka OctaveLibs.zip and gplibs.zip http://www.tatsuromatsuoka.com/octave/Eng/Win/) mingw32 + msys tool chain gnuplot-4.4.3 fig2dev-3.2.5c ghostscript-9.0.2 pstoedit-3.50 c. Octave3.4.3_gcc4.5.2_pkgs_20111026.7z (MD5:2987F6078B4AD161F2D23634D5109D61) - is a 7z archive which includes additional binaries and libraries for a set of octaveforge packages. The included packages are: actuarial-1.1.0 ad-1.0.6 audio-1.1.4 benchmark-1.1.1 bim-1.0.2 bioinfo-0.1.2 civil-engineering-1.0.7 combinatorics-1.0.9 communications-1.1.0_patched control-2.2.0 data-smoothing-1.2.3 dataframe-0.8.2 econometrics-1.0.8 fenv-0.1.0 financial-0.3.2 fpl-1.2.0 fuzzy-logic-toolkit-0.2.4 ga-0.9.8 general-1.2.2 generate_html-0.1.3 geometry-1.2.0 gnuplot-1.0.1 gpc-0.1.7 gsl-1.0.8 ident-1.0.7 image-1.0.15 informationtheory-0.1.8 integration-1.0.7 io-1.0.15 + supporting java jars irsa-1.0.7 java-1.2.8_patched + java.opts file linear-algebra-2.0.0_svn20111014 mapping-1.0.7 mechanics-1.1.0 miscellaneous-1.0.11_svn20110912 missing-functions-1.0.2 msh-1.0.2 multicore-0.2.15 nlwing2-1.2.0 nnet-0.1.13 nurbs-1.3.5 ocs-0.1.1_patched octclip-1.0.0 octgpr-1.2.0 odebvp-1.0.6 odepkg-0.8.0 optim-1.0.16 optiminterp-0.3.3 outliers-0.13.9 physicalconstants-0.1.7 plot-1.0.8 quaternion-1.0.0 secs1d-0.0.8 secs2d-0.0.8 secs3d-0.0.1 signal-1.0.11 simp-1.1.0 sockets-1.0.7_svn20111014 specfun-1.0.9 special-matrix-1.0.7 spline-gcvspl-1.0.8 splines-1.0.7 statistics-1.0.10 strings-1.0.7 struct-1.0.9 symband-1.0.10 symbolic-1.1.0 tcl-octave-0.1.8 time-1.0.9 tsa-4.1.1 video-1.0.2_patched vrml-1.0.12_svn20111014_patched windows-1.1.0 xraylib-1.0.8 zenity-0.5.7 Installation instructions: ----------------------- 1. Create an installation directory of which doesn't have space chars (i.e. C:\Octave\Octave3.4.2_gcc4.5.2\). This directory is referred hereafter as <your_install_dir>. 2. Extract the complete directories tree from Octave3.4.3_gcc4.5.2_20111025.7z to the installation directory keeping the original directory structure as in the archive (you can use 7zip tool from http://www.7-zip.org/). 3. Extract libreadline.dll.a from libreadline.dll.a.7z and copy it to <your_install_dir>\lib subdir. 4. Copy octave3.4.3_gcc4.5.2.lnk to any convenient location and edit its properties respectively to point to <your_install_dir>\bin\octave.exe and <your_install_dir>\share\octave\3.4.3\imagelib\octave-logo.ico as an icon 5. Copy octave3.4.3_gcc4.5.2_docs.lnk to any convenient location and edit its properties respectively to point to <your_install_dir>\doc\octave and <your_install_dir>\share\octave\3.4.3\imagelib\octave-logo.ico as an icon. At this point you can: a. Launch and use octave by double-clicking the copied octave3.4.3_gcc4.5.2.lnk b. Access and browse the documentation files by double-clicking the copied octave3.4.3_gcc4.5.2_docs.lnk Installation instructions for the Octave-forge packages: ----------------------------------------------------- 6. Extract the complete directories tree from Octave3.4.2_gcc4.5.2_pkgs_20111014.7z to the installation directory (<your_install_dir>) keeping the original directory structure as in the archive (you can use 7zip tool from http://www.7-zip.org/). 7. In order to update octave_packages database with your installation tree and auto-load most packages (excluding 'ad' and 'windows' which may crash octave when loaded and 'clear all' is executed), launch Octave and execute the following 3 rebuild commands from the octave console: pkg rebuild -auto pkg rebuild -noauto ad windows pkg rebuild -auto java Last pkg rebuild command is required in order for the java pkg entry to be moved to the top of <your_install_dir>\share\octave\octave_packages db file - thus java pkg is loaded before io pkg is loaded, and io pkg related jars are added to java class path. 8. You can optionally adjust your installed packages status per your specific needs and usage by executing the following commands: a. To interactively load or unload a package pkg load <pkg_name> or pkg unload <pkg_name> b. To disable auto-load for specific pkg <pkg_name> pkg rebuild -noauto <pkg_name> c. To enable auto-load for specific pkg <pkg_name> pkg rebuild -auto <pkg_name> d. To completely uninstall a package pkg uninstall <pkg_name> Optional installation of Notepad++ as an editor (recommended): ------------------------------------------------------------- 9. Download recent Notepad++ installation package from http://notepad-plus-plus.org/ and install it on your system. 10. Edit <your_install_dir>\share\octave\site\m\startup\octaverc and un-comment the line which sets octave default editor: EDITOR('C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe'); Note: You may adjust the above line for the location of notepad++.exe as installed on your system.
