37.2 Using Packages

By default installed packages are not available from the Octave prompt, but it is possible to control this using the pkg load and pkg unload commands. The functions from a package can be added to the Octave path by typing

pkg load package_name

where package_name is the name of the package to be added to the path.

In much the same way a package can be removed from the Octave path by typing

pkg unload package_name
