CYGWIN OCTAVE-FORGE CHANGES
You need to install with setup the specific forge you are looking for.
The update of the global pkg database is now managed
by cygwin setup during the postinstall phase.
A semaphore system is in place to update the database only when needed
and just one time, also when multiple forge packages are added or removed.
The GNU Octave language for numerical computations is a (mostly Matlab (R)
compatible) high-level language, primarily intended for numerical
computations. It provides a convenient command-line interface for solving
linear and nonlinear problems numerically.
If you have questions or comments, please send them to the
