OCTAVE-FORGE NOTE
You need to install with setup the specific forge package
you are looking for.

The update of the global pkg database is 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.

DESCRIPTION
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.
