Octave free download for Mac


Version 6.2.0

Install and use GNU Octave on Mac.

Absolutely Free

Octave overview

Octave.app is a project to bundle and distribute GNU Octave as a native Mac GUI application. This makes it easy to install and use GNU Octave on Mac.

GNU Octave is a language for scientific and numeric programming.

We are not an official GNU project or part of GNU Octave. We are a rag-tag band of misfits who’ve written a tool to download and build GNU Octave and its dependencies and bundle them as a Mac app.

Our goal is to make ready-to-use Octave.app installers available to the public.
