Frequently asked questions about Octave (with answers)

I'm looking for new questions (with answers), better answers, or both. Please send suggestions to bug-octave@bevo.che.wisc.edu. If you have general questions about Octave, or need help for something that is not covered by the Octave manual or the FAQ, please use the help-octave@bevo.che.wisc.edu mailing list.
