    • GNU Octave is actually a free replication of MATLAB. Guest • Aug 2015 • 13 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is really an alternative since it is compatible with nearly all scripts created on matlab. Guest • Dec 2016 • 8 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • If you are a student and want to perform numerical analysis most of the times Octave is a great alternative to Matlab. Guest • Sep 2017 • 5 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • GNU Octave uses the same language of coding that MATLAB with a very title difference. But currently GNU Octave do not has any tool like Simulink (for simulation and modul-based disign) that MATLAB uses. ahmed_meeskeApr 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Works just like Matlab (Minus the toolboxes, for those you will need Matlab), but for Matlab 'like' work Octave works great. You can sit down with a Matlab book and go through it with Octave and have few problems. Octave documentation is excellent. Guest • Dec 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is actively developing open source project cryoffSep 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is an open source clone of MATLAB. Save for a few features that have yet to be updated/added, the syntax and functionality are identical between the two. Guest • Sep 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Complete and almost 100% compatible replication of MATLAB. Guest • Oct 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Same to same commands from MATLAB Guest • May 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Mostly drop-in compatible with matlab. Guest • Jan 2016 Disagree   Agree
