The toolbox can be used through 3 different interfaces:
run the OLPS toolbox in the GUI mode (recommended, available only in Matlab).
run the OLPS toolbox in the Pseudo GUI Mode (PGUI) (for both Matlab and octave)
run the OLPS toolbox in the Command Line Interface (CLI) (recommended for developers, for both Matlab and octave)
The following video is a simple tutorial demonstrating the usage of OLPS via the GUI mode.
Unfortunately, Matlab is a proprietary software, and the GUI requires Matlab for usage. Further, Octave which is freely available does not have a mature GUI. As a result we have developed a Pseudo-GUI, which offers all the features of the GUI, but via a command line interface through interaction with a menu-drive choice system. This works in both Matlab and Octave.
For advanced users, the CLI mode can be used to quickly call the strategies with appropriate parameters.
Detailed instructions on how to use each of the execution modes can be found in the manual, and the references therein. The manual can be downloaded from the Main Project Page or GitHub.
