Octave Wiki (originally known as ScaryOctave,[1] and powered by Oddmuse[2]) is a wiki dedicated to Octave content from GNU. In 2012, the site moved from Oddmuse to the more advanced MediaWiki wiki engine.

GNU Octave is a high-level programming language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language.

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.
