1. Download and install Octave, which is a free software (copyrighted under GPL) similar to Matlab. On a Linux computer, chances are that it is already installed. You also need to have GNUPlot installed. On a Debian GNU/Linux computer,
apt-get install octave gnuplot
2. Download all the above files into a new directory and type `make' in that directory. This produces all the required EPS pictures and compiles the PDF file.example-octave-figs.pdf is the resulting PDF file.
