GNU Octave "is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with Matlab. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language. " In numerical calculations speed is very important. I remember that Octave 2.x, although very useful, used to be slow. What about now when there is Octave 3.2? To answer to this question I decided to compare the time performance of this new Octave release with the performances of versions 3.0 and 2.9 using custom made benchmark script. The tests were run on Intel Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Intel Core Duo 2GHz, 2GB RAM).
