3.1 Built-in Data Types

The standard built-in data types are real and complex scalars and matrices, ranges, character strings, and a data structure type. Additional built-in data types may be added in future versions. If you need a specialized data type that is not currently provided as a built-in type, you are encouraged to write your own user-defined data type and contribute it for distribution in a future release of Octave.
