SciLab 5.5.2 – package of mathematical modules gathered in one program.
Program is developed for mathematical, engineering and other types of calculations. SciLab can be a complete replacement for MATLAB.
On a software market there is a small but really important segment which belongs to educational software. Many of such program are about calculating and mainly used in universities and colleges. SciLab is a free program comparing to its main competitor MATLAB program which is on paying basis.
SciLab Program Description
If to compare MATLAB Program with SciLab: SciLab contains a set of modules for processing hundred and thousand calculations. Also program lets you to add own formulas and calculate those. Program uses C and C++ languages.
Each function or its system can be displayed as graphic (two and three dimensional). 2D and 3D graphics can be statical, as an image or as animation (meaning dynamic). Also there are such elements as interpolation and approximation of function.
SciLab and Matlab are quite similar programs with similar programming language that lets you to create own calculations. Also SciLab can convert files created in MatLab so that you can continue your work with SciLab.
SciLab can be extended with third party or additional libraries. SciLab has an advantage comparing to MATLAB – program is free and does not take much space and does not load computer system. You can download SciLab for free by clicking the link below.
