About Scilab :-
Scilab is a scientific software package for numerical computations providing a powerful open computing environment for engineering and scientific applications. Scilab is an open source software.It is currently used in educational and  industrial environments around the world. Scilab includes hundreds of mathematical functions with the possibility to add interactively programs from various languages (FORTRAN, C, C++, JAVA). It has sophisticated data structures (including lists, polynomials, rational functions, linear systems), an interpreter and a high level programming language. Scilab has been conceived to be an open system where the user can define new data types and operations on these data types.
