\section{Dynare for Octave}
\frametitle{Dynare for Octave (1/2)}
\item GNU Octave (or simply Octave) is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations
\item Basically, it is a free clone of MATLAB: same syntax, almost same set of functions
\item Runs on Windows, GNU/Linux and Mac OS X
\item Advantages:
\item free software, no license fee to pay
\item source code available
\item dynamic and responsive community of users and developers
\item Inconvenients:
\item slower than MATLAB
\item less user friendly (however note that there is a graphical fronted
called ``qtoctave'' that can be installed on top of Octave; a native
frontend is under development)
\frametitle{Dynare for Octave (2/2)}
\item Since version 4.0, Dynare works on top of Octave
\item This makes Dynare 100\% free software
\item Almost all features of Dynare work with Octave (very few exceptions)
