Starting with Version 9, INTLAB is compatible with GNU Octave. The ODE toolbox by F. B√ľnger requires GNU Octave 5.2.0 or newer.

The officially distributed versions, however, may not switch the rounding mode correctly when computing with multiple threads. When using the Windows-64 (recommended) installer version of GNU Octave, INTLAB automatically takes care of the multiple threads issue.

Many thanks to Kai Torben Ohlhus for help with GNU Octave.

More details on OpenBLAS with multiple threads

Most GNU Octave installations, including the Windows version, use the OpenBLAS-Library. By default, OpenBLAS does not synchronize the floating-point control and status register (FPCSR) when using multiple threads for a computation.

When using Windows-64 the problem can be solved automatically as above.

For Linux or a customized solution under Windows-64 proceed as follows:
