1 Scilab

According to the Scilab website,

Scilab is a scientific software package for numerical computations providing a powerful open computing environment for engineering and scientific applications.

Scilab is free, open-source software, and is issued with a CeCILL Licence.

The GNU Octave software is available as source code or as binaries for the following operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows (2000/XP/Vista)
  • Linux (Packages are available for popular distributions such as Debian/Ubuntu, SuSE and Fedora/Red Hat)

Scilab uses syntax which is similar to but not fully compatible with that used in Matlab and GNU Octave.

Extensions to the main package are delivered as Scilab Toolboxes developed by the Scilab community.

2 Scicos

Scicos is a block diagram editing interface supplied free with Scilab which can be used to perform system simulation.
