Octave has extensive tools for solving common numerical linear algebra problems, finding the roots of nonlinear equations, integrating ordinary functions, manipulating polynomials, and integrating ordinary differential and differential-algebraic equations. It is easily extensible and customizable via user-defined functions written in Octave's own language, or using dynamically loaded modules written in C++, C, Fortran, or other languages.
Octave has two graphical backends:
- Native graphics - OpenGL backend witch uses FLTK graphics toolkit.
Native graphics is used by default. Backend can be set by command:
Default backend can be set for all users by editing general configuration file
/etc/octave/octaverc or for current user
