The other request for R for statistical and scientific computing reminded of Gnu Octave.

This is a Matlab-like environment for mathematical stuff (and statistical, and lots more).
I'm currently using Matlab for Linux, though it is proprietary software.
Apparently, Octave is almost completely compatible with Matlab, which is great.

Thank you very much.

Looks like R got done before I had a chance.

If that be, then I'll do Octave. (I call dibs.)

Good luck (I failed with it a while back). I use Landon Curt Noll's calc, a powerful numerical computation package that runs from the console.

I don't know, I'll try again of I can find the source file.

Compiling Octave is a bitch. I needed lapack, fftw, and a few other libraries as well as the GNU Fortran compiler from Slackware. What a mess. I just hope it runs without the Fortran library after I compile it.

Try again I guess...

Lapack is already in the repo, as well as a couple of other math things  Grin:

The Slackware GCC Fortran compiler works fine for building, and I haven't had trouble running the apps or using libraries built with it after I removed it.

I noticed fftw and lapack, but not the netlib BLAS implementation. Hopefully, that's optimized.

Hello,

I compiled Octave, R and octplot packages and uploaded them on my part on repo.  I am currently, preparing a set of other mathematical, chemistry and bioinformatics tools and libraries that I am uploading on VL repo.

regards,
