octave-nlwing2 package information
nonlinear lifting line for wings in Octave
This package allows efficient computation of nonlinear aerodynamic properties of a wing in Octave, a scientific computing software. It employs 2D section data to build a 3D potential vortex model of the flow. It uses a robust Euler-Newton method to track the change of flow vorticity quantities as the angle of attack progresses. This Octave add-on package is part of the Octave-Forge project.
More information about apt-get remove
Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.
apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.
apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
