In this tutorial, we will learn how to create a new Octave script file. A script file is a file that contains Octave commands.
Create Octave Script File
Octave script provides a convenient way to execute a sequence of Octave commands. The steps to create a script file are as follows:
Choose File >> New Script menu option.
Alternatively, click on the Script Editor tab. The editor opens with an unnamed script file.
Enter the Octave commands in the script editor. We enter multiple Octave commands. Commands should be error-free and we need to take care.
We can debug the script for errors.
Save the file with a filename. Give a filename and the Octave script file has a .m file extension. Click on the Save button.
For example, sample.m
We can regularly save the script using the floppy save icon in the script editor.
Sample Octave Script
% Octave Sample Script x = linspace(0,2*pi,100); y = sin(x); plot(x,y); x-label('x'); y-label('y'); title('Sample Octave Plot');
To run the script file we need to add the script file directory to the path.
Click Add directory to Load Path button to add the load path.
