11.11 Organization of Functions Distributed with Octave
Many of the standard functions provided in Octave are distributed as function files. They are loosely organized by topic, in subdirectories of ‘octave-home/lib/octave/version/m’, to make it easier to find them.
The following is a list of all the function file subdirectories, and the types of functions you will find there.
- Functions for playing and recording sounds.
- Functions for design and simulation of automatic control systems.
- Elementary functions.
- Functions for computing interest payments, investment values, and rates of return.
Miscellaneous matrix manipulations, like
triu, as well as other basic functions, like
- Image processing tools. These functions require the X Window System.
- Input-output functions.
- Functions for linear algebra.
- Functions that don't really belong anywhere else.
- Minimization of functions.
- Functions to manage the directory path Octave uses to find functions.
- Install external packages of functions in Octave.
- Functions for displaying and printing two- and three-dimensional graphs.
- Functions for manipulating polynomials.
- Functions for creating and manipulating sets of unique values.
- Functions for signal processing applications.
- Functions for handling sparse matrices.
- Special functions.
- Functions that create special matrix forms.
- Octave's system-wide startup file.
- Statistical functions.
- Miscellaneous string-handling functions.
- Perform unit tests on other functions.
- Functions related to time keeping.
