GNU Octave (without forge packages which can be thought as plugins or
extension packages) is able to read write various file formats which
could be considered as some kind of simple "database"
There is also a package to access PostgreSQL databases:
And I think I've seen some wrappers for MySQL/MariaDB as well.
Octave is a high level programming language. It definitely does save data. It can also interface with many other programming languages. It would therefore be possible (perhaps with some difficulty) to enable Octave to ling to any data base system.
As far as I know when you download the Octave install program the octave download site does not keep any record or the details of the person downloading the program. At least, one is not asked about any such data.
