Installing the Symbolic Module in Octave

In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to seamlessly install the Symbolic module for Octave.

Launch the Octave command line interface. Then, enter the following command:

pkg install -forge symbolic

This command facilitates the installation of the Symbolic code within Octave.

During the installation process, the system will verify if the dependencies associated with Python and Sympy are met.

Should any dependencies remain unresolved, you might be prompted to install additional Python modules.

Once you've successfully installed the Symbolic module, remember to load it before use. Simply type:

pkg load symbolic

This command initializes the Symbolic code, making it ready for use.

You're all set to begin! As a quick test to ensure everything is in order, try calculating a derivative.
