Re: Octave 4 - Plot Problem

For me it works, when I ignore the last command on Octave 4.0.0/Win8.1.
Figure is defined as "Create a new figure window for plotting...", if you type help figure, I think this creates the window but the plot command calls the QTHandles control that displays the graph plotted.  

I am not sure to which technical article you are referring to originally.
I hope this helps.

I am a totally new user and have just installed Octave 4 as a trial.  I am going through some of the early examples from Wiki Books and the arithmetic functions work well but when I come to trying a simple plot the “figure window” opens but no data is displayed and the window “freezes” before the system crashes.  No information on why.


The code is very simple and from Wiki Books:


x = linspace(0,2*pi,100);





I have tried the GUI version 4.0 and also the command line version both fail at the point of executing the call to  “plot” when the “figure” window displays with no plot.


I’m not sure if it is the installation or a configuration issue.  I’m using window 7 and Java version 8 – both updated in the last few days.


Any help would be appreciated.
