Installs and launches GNU Octave. Octave is like Matlab (trademark of Mathworks), but free (as in freedom) software. Not some similar program, but really Octave running natively.

The app is now supported by Teradyne.

For you to be able to launch GNURoot Octave
1) You need to install GNURoot Debian.
2) You need to go to the install/update tab in GNURoot Debian and click install/reinstall button.
3) You need to go to the install/update tab in GNURoot Octave and click install/update button (after choosing whatever additional packages you want to install – you have to press the button even if you don’t want any extra packages).
4) You need to choose the gnuplot package if you want plotting to work.
5) There are many other packages to choose from.

You can add .m files and a .octaverc startup file in an external storage directory setup for you. Often at /sdcard/GNURoot/home.

Your latest plots (.png files) can be found in an external storage directory setup for you. Often at /sdcard/GNURoot/intents.

You will be running in a fake chroot of sorts which includes Octave and many of the programs you expect to find in a standard GNU/Linux (read Debian) install.

Plot commands and edit commands fire off intents to use whatever image viewer or text editor you have.
