octave-atlas-2.1.35-6: Matlab-like language, with atlas libs
 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.
 This version links the fast blas and lapack libs from the atlas package.
