       Octave  is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical com-
       putations.  It provides a convenient command line interface for solving
       linear and nonlinear problems numerically.


       The  primary documentation for Octave is written using Texinfo, the GNU
       documentation system, which allows the same source files to be used  to
       produce on-line and printed versions of the manual.

       You  can  read  the on-line copy of the Octave documentation by issuing
       the command

           octave:13> help -i

       while running Octave interactively, by using the GNU Emacs  info  mode,
       or by running standalone programs like info or xinfo.


       The best way to submit a bug report for Octave is to use the command

            octave:13> bug_report

       while  running  Octave  interactively.  This will create a template bug
       report file and start an editor on that file.   Your  message  will  be
       sent  to  the bug-octave mailing list once you are finished editing the

       If you are unable to use the bug_report command, send your  message  to
       the  bug-octave@bevo.che.wisc.edu  mailing  list  by  some other means.
       Please read the ‘Bugs’ chapter in the Octave manual to find out how  to
       submit  a bug report that will enable the Octave maintainers to fix the
