GNU Octave

I see that MATLAB is well supported - has anyone used picoscope with GNU Octave?

Not something we have tried in house, and not sure if any customers have had a go, although as we haven't received any requests about this it would be unlikely.

Is there any interest or has anyone tried Matlab drivers for the 6000 series with GNU Octave?

Hello,

I tried GNU octave with some of our devices today including the 6000 series but unfortunately did not work. I found that their implementation of the Instrument Control Toolbox is incomplete in comparison to Matlab and therefore missing some of the many functions required. It seems the functions they have included so far are only the NI VISA specific functions.

Our Matlab examples require many functions from "The Generic Instrument Drivers" and "Instrument Driver Editing and Testing" sections of the Instrument Control Toolbox. Some examples include: 'icdevice', 'connect', 'get', 'set'.
