Submission + - Octave and gnuplot coming to Android ( 1

MathIsTasty writes: Recently, it was announced on the Octave-maintainers list that a Kickstarter campaign has been launched to bring Matlab style numerical computations and graphing to Android via a "more than" port of Octave and gnuplot. While, I doubt it will be as successful as some recent games on Kickstarter, is this a reasonable way to fund free software development? Now, we just have to worry about people working on simulating solar irradiation while driving. Here is a good blog post about the project.

Octave and gnuplot coming to Android

  • Thanks to the submitter (hopefully a backer of the Kickstarter campaign) for putting together a decent submission (I failed at such a little while ago). I am the one working on the Android port of Octave and gnuplot and running the associated Kickstarter campaign. I have a day job, so can't answer questions non-stop, but if this gets traffic, I will do my best to be a good sport and handle any questions etc.
