I call octave from perl and perl from octave all the time.

Normally i use

system(sprintf('perl -e %s', somestring)) from octave


the converse from perl.

I communicate data between the two through files or pipes.

I had an idea of writing a perl_oct  perl module which would
open octave with a popen2 and would then use tie to tie
perl variables to octave variables. Communication perl/octave
would be by perl executing octave commands through stdin, stdout.

(I realize that this is a kludge; the proper way would probably
 be to link to liboctave, but that would be far too much work
 for the simple things I had in mind)

I got as far as testing the various parts to see that it
would work, but I don't think I'll ever get around to 
writing it.
