I need octave-java installed. I tried using macports, but evidently I'm missing something here. I am running Yosemite.

I already have octave installed, so I tried to install octave-java . . .

$sudo port install octave-java

I cannot seem to find the executable, octave-java which should be in /opt/local/bin/

$cd /opt/local
 $find . -name "*octave-java*" -print
./lib/octave/packages/.turd_octave-java
./share/octave/packages/.turd_octave-java
./share/octave/packages/java-1.2.9/doc/octave-java.html

./var/macports/sources/distfiles.macports.org/ports/math/octave-java

Question: Where is octave-java and/or how do I get it from macports?

EDIT :

$port contents octave-java

Port octave-java contains:
/opt/local/lib/octave/packages/.turd_octave-java
/opt/local/share/octave/java.tar.gz
/opt/local/share/octave/packages/.turd_octave-java
  • What does port contents octave-java show (I can't tell as you need to have octave-java installed to see it) – Mark Aug 14 '15 at 18:10
  • I think you ned to ask on the macports lists trac.macports.org/wiki/MailingLists - that looks wrong . I would note that the portfil I think implies you need Apple's Java 6 and not later – Mark Aug 14 '15 at 19:52
