Default MATLAB, but no quadprog

I have MATLAB, but because I do not have the Optimization Toolbox, I do not have quadprog(). What are my options for getting the SVM problems solved?

Here are the options as I see them:
  • Free trial of Optimization Toolbox [not sure if I can get that download immediately, but will try soon]
  • Download Octave and see if qp() will work in MATLAB
  • Download Octave and try to start from scratch there
  • Randomly guess at the answer for this assignment
  • Write my own quadratic programming solver from scratch

These are listed in roughly my order that I think they might work for me.

Any thoughts or other options are welcome.

How badly off will I be for the last couple assignments, or the final, if I cannot get any quadratic programming to work?
