    Notify-Send for Matlab/Octave

    Hi everybody!

    I recently wrote a little Matlab function to send notifications to libNotify.

    I tried it with octave without any problems. This is ideal for those long running jobs. This way you don't have to check matlab/octave all the time to see when it's done.

    Very interesting. I have been wanting to sit down and learn launchpad/bzr and I think I am going to copy your idea and do the same thing for R.

    Someone may have already do it, but perhaps I'll be able to do it better.

    There's an octave-zenity package which among other things, supports notifications.

    Code:
    zenity_notification (text, icon)
    It's part of the Ubuntu repositories.

    If you download the development version with SVN, it's much more complete. Other than a one-time notifications, the function you can create a icon on the toolbar and use standard error, info, question and warning icons. The whola package allows to create many dialog boxes such as file selection, error messages, list of options with radio buttons or check boxes.
