I’ve just downloaded Octave to use with Dynare on my MacOS machine, as my Matlab license was attached to my previous institution. I can’t seem to get it to work.
I’ve tried Octave versions 4.4.1 and 6.1.0 and Dynare versions 4.5.7, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, and 4.6.3. Across multiple combinations, I seem to generate either an error or warning with the text, “/Applications/Dynare/4.5.7/matlab/…/mex/octave/: No such file or directory”
Have I set up something wrong? Which versions of Octave and Dynare should I be using? I keep getting warnings telling me to use previous versions of Octave, though bizarrely Dynare 4.6.3 asks to use Octave 4.4.1, while Dynare 4.6.1 asks me to use a later version. Is this reversion deliberate?
Thanks for your help!
