 Matrices as fundamental data type.
 Builtin support for complex numbers.
 Powerful builtin math functions and extensive function libraries.
 Extensibility in the form of userdefined functions.
In fact, Octave treats incompatibility with MATLAB as a bug; therefore, it can be considered a software clone, […]
