I've made an initial commit, containing demonstrations of:

- keeping compiled code compatible with several Octave versions,

- safely specifying additional library directories for linking by mkoctfile,

- providing a package manual,

- deriving new types from octave_base_value.

It also contains the root level Makefile.

A repository for the example package has been created, clone with:

hg clone ssh://jpicarbajal@hg.code.sf.net/p/octave/example-package example-package

JP Carbajal suggested to include an example for subdirectories.

He'll commit something of this kind, I think.

Further contributions are welcome.

The actual person(s) this task will be assigned to has to be deduced from the next posts.


We'd like to provide an example package at the Octave Forge website.

Ideas for its contents are as yet (some of them by Julien, thanks):

  • root level Makefile (currently provided as a separate file)

  • framework and example for supporting alternative symbol names of different Octave versions

  • example for including a package manual

  • example for defining new Octave types in oct-files
