Good luck! I have been looking for a good graphing application that has the same Octave functionality as Octave LE but supports WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) and doesn't make me crazy trying to learn octave. So thanks to my friend Michael J. I just downloaded and installed Octave LE on my laptop with the intention of learning it. Figured out quickly it was missing a few key features from the standard Octave software and this is the result. Things missing however: support for multiple CPU cores, mouse integration (excepting the built-in one on my laptop), GUI support (although not nearly as responsive as I would like), and most important of all Sudo file system integration.
Currently I am using octave with WYSIWYG editors like those found in the gnu octave signal package. Working as expected, I was able to import my existing Caffeine measurement library from my Linux machine to my Windows 10 machine without any problems. Then running a few octave scripts, gnu octave signal package did an excellent job of converting my Caffeine measurements into WYSIWYG format that my desktop computer could read.
gnu octave signal package does a good job of converting the file my desktop computer needs into the file my gnu octave implementation requires. So far so good! In a couple of weeks, I should be able to upload a new website and begin publishing articles. In the mean time, I'm enjoying the freedom of using octave with WYSIWYG editors like those found in the gnu octave signal package. Cheers!
