Hi ,
dear members

I have a problem for editing in octave.

When I write "edit" in the original directory when I start octave,

I get the error message"cannot find entrypoint -wtof in msvcrt.dll.

I maked some plots in 2-and 3dim and saved this as ps files and Pdf files,no

I know I'm a beginner???

Kin  regards

I just went through this recently, so it's fresh on my mind. My preferred editor is gVim; you can adjust to your own taste.

1. First, in your Octave installation find the file that corresponds to this one on my machine:

In that file, add the following:
  setenv('HOME', 'c:\octave\local');
  cd ~/

You should, of course, change the path to whatever you want your Octave home directory to be. This is the directory that will be used for a simple "edit" command, and where your local .octaverc file will go.

2.  In that HOME directory, create a .octaverc file with this in it:
  edit mode "async"
  edit editor "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Vim\\vim73\\gvim.exe %s"

  # search path

The experts around here may refine this somewhat. I am a beginner, and these tips are from Hansen, "GNU Octave Beginner's Guide."
