OK, Miquel, I will close my eyes and jump into this. Being a Mac user, I'm not very experienced at installing Unix s/w, but I will first try to install Clawpack on my system (Mac OS X 10.2.3). If I'm successful at that, then I'll see if Clawpack and Octave will play together. I will certainly post on my progress or non-progress plus pleas for help. Thanks.

Hi.  I'm sorry if this may be off topic.  I'm interested in using
Clawpack, a numerical solver for hyperbolic conservation laws.


Clawpack uses Matlab to plot.  Has anyone tried using Clawpack with
Octave instead? Or does anyone have any inkling as to how easy or hard
it may be to make Clawpack work with Octave?  I'm almost a complete
newbie to using Octave (and Matlab).

my feeling from a fast *really fast* look at the code is that
it's quite portable, and that it doesn't use matlab specific stuff
(graphical interfaces and the like). Give it a try and post whatever
problem you face, indeed, the package authors might appreciate
your testing efforts.
