Abstract

Scilab is an interpreted language that is based on a set of powerful built-in functions called primitives (of which there are around three hundred) that are written in C or Fortran. Since the Scilab language is interpreted, it is easy to design, develop, and experiment with data and algorithms with Scilab. Furthermore, Scilab is very useful for prototyping, since it provides many tools that aid in the rapid development of programming tools. Application building in Scilab is accomplished by creating libraries of functions written in the Scilab language. The functions contained in a library are built up from other functions and Scilab primitives.
