Comment (by boccio-john):

 Replying to [comment:4 kencu]:
 > Well yes we do, but octave has a lot of supporting ports, and Ventura is
 very new, and many MacPorts regulars haven't bought or have access to an
 arm Mac yet to fix issues that might arise.
 > You are breaking new ground, but you'll have success in the end I
 believe. Are you reasonably facile with basic computer skills? For
 example, if I asked to to:

 do you feel you could do something such as that?

 Yes, I can do something like that illustrated command.
