Octave Forge Packages

Perhaps we can use this to keep track of getting the various octave forge packages into F15.

Package Description Owner Review

ad Automatic Forward Differentiation
audio Audio recording, processing and playing tools.
benchmark The package contains code used to benchmark speed of Octave.
bim Package for solving Diffusion Advection Reaction (DAR) Partial Differential Equations based on the Finite Volume Scharfetter-Gummel (FVSG) method a.k.a Box Integration Method (BIM)
bioinfo Bioinformatics manipulation
bugfix-3.0.6 This package overrides some functions included with the 3.0.5 release that contain minor bugs.
civil-engineering Functions to solution some ODE's in Civil Engineering.
combinatorics Combinatorics functions, incuding partitioning.
communications Digital Communications, Error Correcting Codes (Channel Code), Source Code functions, Modulation and Galois Fields
control Octave control systems package increasingly based on the SLICOT Fortran library
data-smoothing Algorithms for smoothing noisy data
database These are bindings that allow SQL queries and other database operations on postgres, mysql, sqlite, and standard ODBC databases from within Octave. A simplified interface that is uniform across all database types is provided, as well as the entire C client API for each database (libpq, libmysqlclient, etc).
dataframe Data manipulation toolbox similar to R data.frame
econometrics Econometrics functions including MLE and GMM based techniques.
engine An external interface library for Octave
es Spanish package for the construction of native language translations of Octave functions.
fenv On supported architectures, change the rounding mode of the floating point arithmetics (to nearest, up, down, to zero) or change the precision of the arithmetical operations (single, double, double extended). Experimentally test the properties of the floating point arithmetics.
financial Financial manipulation and plotting functions
fits The Octave-FITS package provides functions for reading, and writing FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) files. The package supports uses the libcfitsio library.
fl-core The package contains code for basic functions in Fuzzy Logic for Octave.
fpl Collection of routines to save data in different graphical formats.
ga Genetic optimization code
general General tools for octave. String dictionary, parallel computing.
generate_html This package provides functions for generating HTML pages that contain the help texts for a set of functions. The package is designed to be as general as possible, but also contains convenience functions for generating a set of pages for entire packages.
gnuplot Scripts to save data in gnuplot-readable formats, specify gnuplot commands that will be used to produce graphics, and call gnuplot. See help g_ez quickly produce the most common plots.
gpc Add a description to this package!
gsl Octave bindings to the GNU Scientific Library
ident Addition System Indentification Control functions.
image The Octave-forge Image package provides functions for processing images. The package also provides functions for feature extraction, image statistics, spatial and geometric transformations, morphological operations, linear filtering, and much more. orion [1]
