Channel Access for GNU Octave

The CaOctave package has been superceeded by the addition of support for Octave to the MCA package (ORNL) from Kay Kasemire

Octave users may also be interested in the IOC-Octave (PSI) device support developed by Miroslaw Dach; this permits an IOC to send calculations to an Octave interpreter and interpret the results.

Caution, dead tree CaOctave

The CaOctave package is still provided here, but Kay Kasemir's MCA extension should be used instead, it is much more comprehensive and up-to-date.
