I recently acquired the Win32 version of Octave from the Internet and I am 
using it on Windows 95.  I got it going with some effort and I am very 
satisfied with the package, especially the similarity with Matlab, which I 
am used to.  I do, however, have a few questions conserning Octave:

1 - I can't seem to change the path that Octave uses for finding function 
files.  I want to save new M-files is my own working directory, but I 
cannot figure out how to change the working directory or add it to the 

2 - I downloaded the Win32 build of Octave that seems to originate from 
1998.  I also saw that there is a Unix build from July 2000 availible. 
 Could you tell me what the changes are (I guess it is significant) between 
the current version that I have and the latest Unix release.  If the 
changes are significant, is could be worth downloading the source and 
trying to create a Win32 build of the latest release.  I have never done 
this myself, that is my I ask first.

3 - Do you have any M-files availible that I can use as demos?  I acquired 
Octave in order to avoid the rediculous price of Matlab and I want to 
introduce it to my colleagues (I am an Electronic Engineer).  Some demos of 
2D and 3D plots or some extensive computations could be helpful.

4 - Do you have a .PDF version of the Octave Manual availible, or perhaps a 
Postcript version that is more suitable for conversion to .PDF.  I used 
Adobe .PDF Writer to convert the included manual to .PDF, but the .PDF is  
 not of good quality and it is difficult to read.

Could you please respond to this message to the adress address@hidden 
with my name "Francois du Plessis" in the subject field.
