A scientific software package from INRIA, France

Scilab is a high-level language for numerical computations in a user-friendly environment.


  • Elaborate data structures (polynomial, rational and string matrices, lists, multivariable linear systems)
  • Sophisticated interpreter and programming language with MATLAB-like syntax
  • Hundreds of built-in math functions (new primitives can easily be added)
  • Graphics (2d, 3d, animation)
  • Open structure (easy interfacing with Fortran and C via online dynamic link)
  • Symbolic capabilities through Maple interface
  • Many built-in libraries (linear algebra, control systems, signal processing, simulation, optimization, network analysis)
