Follow-up Comment #18, bug #54662 (project octave):

Octave-cli won't work without "opengl32.dll". I used dependency walker and it
shows that "LIBOCTINTERP-7.DLL" has been built against "opengl32.dll" and some
other possibly unrelated graphics libraries like "LIBGRAPHICSMAGICK++-12.DLL"

@Markus I'm sorry, as I did not judge you correctly. At least you are
responsive. I believe that here the speed and importance of upgrading the
third party libraries to their latest versions is more than the speed of
improving the core Octave functionalities. 
While, in spite of the recent improvements by jwe, the interpreter doesn't
have a reasonable speed there is a tendency towards upgrading to the latest
llvm version.
The same trend can be viewed in upgrading to the latest Qt version and those
upgrades sometimes aren't without memory overhead.
I think I and others like me should switch to GNU R as it seems that it can be
run in Windows XP.
PS: Beginning in Octave 4.4 I have been working on an Octave native compiler.
Its runtime is almost complete. Its code generator is 80% complete and its
build system is 70% complete. Without any shame all of its developments are
done in a Windows XP system. I hope that it will be released and will be
dedicated to all of users and developers.
