Thanks for the help.  I really appreciate it.  As far as I'm concerned, I can
live with the state of things (i.e., where a resized plot looks as it
should), at least for now.  Plotting does not comprise a large portion of
the uses I make of the software.  I am also pretty engrained in using the
non-gui version, which this defaults to.  I presume the Octave.app (don't
know how I missed finding that) defaults to a gui version at startup?  I bet
my students will prefer that.

I'll monitor this feed to see if you get round to investigating this
further, and post new things you learn.

Thanks again.

You're welcome!

Yep, Octave.app defaults to the GUI (double-click the icon and you get the Qt GUI), but you can also launch the command line version by running it from the command line like so:


That octave binary is the regular old octave program, and it supports the normal options.

Sebastian is also a teacher; students were his main use case for making Octave.app. (He's the original creator; I just came along later and spruced it up some.)

Yeah, I'd bet your students would prefer the GUI. It shortens the learning curve for new users: actions are discoverable, and the editor has syntax highlighting and stuff to assist you in writing code.
